The POWER of COMMUNITY
Reaching out to community
One of the first actions taken by Dr. Jeff Keshen, VP (Grenfell Campus) was to establish a Grenfell Campus Community Advisory Committee.
Grenfell Day at the Plaza, held fall 2018, was an opportunity for residents and city visitors to take in displays and interactive booths from Grenfell’s schools and departments. Children were particularly intrigued by the mini makerspace set up by Ferriss Hodgett Library, as well as interactive presentations about chemistry in everyday life delivered by Grenfell environmental science students.
Grenfell Day at the Royals was a family-friendly event, offering discounted tickets to Grenfell faculty, staff and students.
Perhaps the most well-known Grenfell events for community residents are the Teddy Bear Clinic, offered by Western Regional School of Nursing students, and Tricks or Treats, the Let’s Talk Science Hallowe’en event. Both events, geared towards children and their families, saw hundreds of participants visit our campus.
