MISSION and VALUES:

Please explain your creative service project idea, and articulate how each of your members will incorporate your interests/skills/activities from question #1 into this project for the ArtStreet, UD campus, or Dayton community. This description should be no more than 250 words and should get to the ‘heartbeat’ of the project’s spirit and why your house should be the one to bring the project to the UD Campus and community. Successful projects in the past have been the creation of original art works for local hospitals and special-support housing, lead art programs in schools where the arts have been cut, story-teller concert series, etc.
4. SMART GOALS: Please list 3 SMART goals that will help you implement and accomplish your service project. Please make sure that one of your goals also addresses how your group will improve/contribute to the neighborhood community as described in the University’s Commitment to Community document.
5. LOCATION: Please indicate your first, second, and third choices for housing location if you are selected to reside at ArtStreet.
