Good Neighbor Initiative
The Good Neighbor Initiative was started to foster positive relations between UCSC and the City of Santa Cruz. Good Neighbor Initiative Interns work diligently with the UCSC University Relations Office to bridge communication between neighbors, students, the city, and the university. Interns provide student interface with neighbors and are glad to field any suggestions, responses, or policy ideas to improve the university's relations. The goal of the Good Neighbor Initiative program is to foster good relations between everyone in the Santa Cruz community!
Some projects that the interns have done in the past include helping create a UCSC Campus Walking Map, holding Housing Workshops for students interested in moving off campus, and creating a "Good Neighbor Guidelines" brochure for students and residents alike to read.
