Community Benefit Report Shows UF is a Good Neighbor
Last year, more than 10,000 people attended musical events at The University of Findlay and students, faculty and staff collected more than 44,000 pounds of food for Findlay’s Chopin Hall. A recent publication contains this information, as well as other facts and figures that show the University’s value to the Hancock County community.
The Community Benefit Report 2014 uses text and infographics to illustrate why the University is an asset to the area. For example, in addition to an annual student community service project that totals more than 2,000 volunteer hours, the University’s College of Education provides free small group and individual tutoring to elementary and middle school students.
“As president of The University of Findlay, I believe that our energy and commitment to excellence radiate out into our surrounding communities and impact them for the better,” said Katherine Fell, president, in an introduction to the publication.
The University of Findlay’s first publication of this type, the Community Benefit Report for 2014 features a timeline illustrating 132 years of growth, audience numbers for musical and sports events, and total expenditures in Hancock County during the 2013-2014 fiscal year ($8,865,290). It includes profiles on “Community Jewels,” such as the Mazza Museum, the Clubhouse reading program and Shafer Library that is open to community residents.
