Neighborhood University

Friends and Neighbors,  I suspect many of you have seen announcements through various list serves, the stories in our own CD News, and a piece on the Local page of the Sunday Times about the N’hood University.  As the N’hood U admin I’d like to encourage any and all who would like to offer a course to check out the blog,, send your offering to [email protected]

You don’t have to live in the Colman neighborhood to offer or take a class.  And please feel free to add to this thread if you’d like to discuss.

Here’s the format for advertising a class:

Name of Class

Instructor’s Name

Short Description

When: Starting date, frequency, end date if there is one



Contact name, phone number, email

A short bio of the instructor, facilitator, host, whatever..
