Name or title of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome:
Newark Hull House

A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:

Inspired by the Hull Houses of the turn of the century, four Denison University students ditched their campus housing for a Newark home so they can live and become more of a part of the community they’re trying to help.

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.

They are living in downtown Newark, Ohio and using their space and their talents to help fight poverty and provide meeting space, help and resources to a variety of individuals and organizations in the community.
