Town-Gown Advisory Council

USC Lancaster is pleased to host our first Town-Gown Advisory Council, bringing together participants from our local community and from the university faculty, staff and student body to explore ways to improve our community from many perspectives, including health, education, economics, culture and arts. Participants will read The Optimal Town-Gown Marriage by Dr. Stephen M. Gavazzi, Dean and Director of The Ohio State University at Mansfield regional campus—an institution similar in a number of respects to USCL—and discuss creative strategies for enhancing the educational mission of USCL and the economic and cultural prospects of Lancaster County.
