Northwestern Network and Neighborhood (N3) Initiative

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

The Northwestern Neighborhood & Network Initiative, or N3 for short, is being developed under
the leadership of Andrew Papachristos (Professor of Sociology and Faculty Fellow of Institute for Policy
Research) as an incubator for new ways that faculty, experts, and students at Northwestern can engage
communities, civic partners, and policy makers to address core problems facing the residents of Chicago,
Evanston, and surrounding communities. Specific projects and types of engagement will be linked by a
focus on how the social relationships among networks, geographic communities, and the constellation of
related groups, organizations, and civic partners affect what we feel, think, and do—and how
understanding, building, and leveraging this sort of network-thinking can improve neighborhoods, the
city, and our region.
