Thriving Neighbors Initiative

Advancing SCU's Thriving Neighbors Initiative will deepen the University's impact on the Greater Washington neighborhood and strengthen the University's commitment to experiential learning.

The Ignatian Center’s Thriving Neighbors program links SCU and the Greater Washington neighborhood (one of the lowest median income areas of San Jose) in projects that benefit both SCU students and neighborhood residents. By engaging SCU students, faculty, and staff in partnerships with organizations that work in the Greater Washington community, SCU aims to expand educational opportunities for children from that neighborhood and contribute to the economic development of its residents.
