Past Partnerships and Service Opportunities
Inter-disciplinary Partnership with Landscaping Architecture, Graphic Arts, and Interior Design at University of Idaho
The Center has been engaged in a collaborative inter-disciplinary project with Landscaping architecture, Graphic Arts, and Interior Design professors and students. In the spring of 2018 students developed students developed 10 different plans. The Center has adopted the Frank Lloyd Wright plan. Above is the new logo of the Center designed by University of Idaho graphic art student Britani Phelps. The new logo is now featured on the Center window, scrolling monitors and the Center and will soon also be on letterhead and business cards. The Center is also working on phase one of the new landscaping project. During fall 2018 SYNC volunteer day, students assisted to level a dipping paver sidewalk, enlargen the memorial garden, remove an existing pergola in preparation for the installation of a labyrinth, and did some serious pruning and weeding. Hats off to the many students and professors who have helped these projects come to fruition with a sign that pops out from Hello Walk. Note the new logo above!
Stopping Sexploitation inter-disciplinary Partnership Completed During Spring of 2018
In the spring of 2018, the Center partnered with Women's Studies and Violence Prevention at the University of Idaho, Alternative to Violence of the Palouse, and the Moscow Police Department to offer this five-part speaker series available to U of I students. See slides of that event below
