Westwood Good Works

  • Print

Westwood Good WorksGood things happen when Westwood employees come together in their communities. During the months of May and June, designated Westwood Good Works months, Westwood employees will each be given a paid half-day off to contribute to their communities. 

In 2013, our inaugural year for Good Works, sixty-four percent of faculty and staff volunteered nearly 3,000 hours of their time. Additionally, Westwood donated a total of $25,000 to regional organizations including A Better Chicago, Colorado Association of Black Professional Engineers and Scientists (CABPES), American Diabetes Association, the Children’s Institute, the David and Margaret House, Laura’s House and the Robert F. Kennedy Institute.  

Faculty and staff had a chance to build relationships with one another and organizations within their communities. To read about last year's volunteer efforts of campuses in each region and see photos of Good Works in action, click below.
