Office is resource for community
Princeton NJ -- This issue of the Princeton Weekly Bulletin is being mailed to residents of the local community on behalf of the Office of Community and State Affairs, a bridge between "town and gown."
Office staff members serve to link the University to state and local government representatives, as well as the residents of neighboring communities. According to Pam Hersh, director of the Office of Community and State Affairs, her team "works with state, county and municipal government officials, plus with a wide variety of community organizations, to enhance the quality of life throughout the region."
The office gets involved in issues such as donations to municipalities, land use, transportation, environment and economic development. Staff members also oversee the Community Auditing Program (see story on this page), the Program in Continuing Education, the Use of University Facilities Program and the Surplus Equipment Donations Program, as well as numerous arts/entertainment initiatives for the community, such as Community/Staff Day at Princeton Stadium (see story in this issue) and the Communiversity spring festival.
