Drake Community Action Board seeks input

The Drake Community Action Board is attempting to identify barriers that hinder better relations between Drake students and the Drake Neighborhood. The board is conducting a survey to inquire about such issues as student perceptions of the neighborhood, factors that influence those perceptions and whether they change during students’ time at Drake. The resulting report will be used to build the foundation for a meaningful and sustainable partnership between Drake University and the Drake Neighborhood.

Please help by filling out the survey at this link.
