Students Fight Poverty in a Living/Learning Home
To truly effect change, you must address the systems underlying the cause.
So Amber Deleon ’20, Taylor Shook ’20, Andrew Boyle ’19, and Kellon Patey ’19, are embarking on an experiment. They have taken an apartment, called The Hull House, in Newark to study and fight poverty.
Kerry Shea Penland, Denison’s Entrepreneurship coach, had the opportunity to partner with a group of students as they explored their off-campus living options.
The students took advantage of the Red Frame Lab space and resources to weave their mission into a written proposal for campus governance funding and university support for the project. The Hull House is a great example of design thinking and entrepreneurship in action.
