Professor Juan Martinez, Eric Crabtree-Nelson, Manager of the HWC Wellness Center, Ali Kleiche (student) and Amelia Tsang, Executive Office Manager for the President’s Office joined me today at a great event sponsored by the American’s Urban Campus: Forging Partnerships to Prevent Violence in Chicago. We heard ideas from Walter Katz, Deputy Chief of Staff for Public Safety – City of Chicago, Roseanna Ander, Founding Executive Director of UChicago Crime Lab and Education Lab, and Beth Catlett, Associate Professor and Chair for the Women’s and Gender Studies at DePaul University. They we worked in groups from people all of the city from various Colleges, World Business Chicago, Lurie Children’s Hospital and other community based organizations. Working together we came up with some great strategies. Big thanks to the HWC team for working all day on this important issue!
