Campus and Community United wants to do work in the USC University Park neighborhood.
They've already taken concrete steps
as they are assisting L.A. Bicycles, a local shop inside University Village, according to Daily Trojan reporter, Lindsay Berg
“The purpose of CCU is to promote neighborhood opportunity, and this year we are really hoping to expand on our coalition and develop relations with partners in order to put movement towards our goals,” USC senior Daniel Wu told Berg.
“We are really trying to build off of USC’s tradition of service for the community. [President Steven B. Sample] stresses the importance of housing and jobs for USC’s surrounding neighbors and so does CCU,” Wu told the DT.
I attended the first meeting of CCU this semester and Wu gave a powerful, impassioned and informed Powerpoint presentation about the demographics of the area. And about 30 students listened ... and now they are doing.
And they are the newest members of University Park!
