University Neighborhood Partners brings together University and west side resources in reciprocal learning, action and benefit

“…a community coming together”

OUR  VISION

The University and west side neighborhoods share a vision of a community woven together through partnerships based on mutual empowerment, discovery and learning rooted in diverse life experiences.  By addressing  systemic barriers to educational success, these collaborative partnerships foster increased access to higher education for community members, a University enriched by its involvement  in the community, and an enhanced quality of life for all involved.

  OUR VALUES

  • UNP is committed to mutual respect, empowerment and learning rooted in diverse life experiences.
  • Understanding and knowledge are furthered by the open, active and mutual sharing of information and resources.
  • Multiple kinds of knowledge and life experiences are central to address social, community and University issues.
  • Knowledge is power and must be available to everyone.
  • It is the right of all people to have access to the greatest range of opportunities; it is the choice of each individual how to utilize these opportunities.

 UNP and our partners strive to live these values
