Our Partners

The diversity of our partner organizations allows us to collaborate in a number of ways, and we hope to continue to strengthen these relationships over time. In addition to SAIC’s two floors, the Nichols Tower. Here are our working partnerships:

SAIC has made a long-term commitment to Homan Square, and we know the best way to be a good neighbor is to care and be cared for, connecting with dialogue and participation. In March 2016 SAIC held its first annual Day of Service in celebration of the School’s 150th Anniversary. Wearing t-shirts emblazoned with the word “SERVE” designed by artist in residence Mashaun Hendricks, more than 50 SAIC students, faculty, and staff volunteers visited SAIC's partners in Nichols Tower and other local organizations to help our neighbors with their missions. Working with participants and staff at the Firehouse Community Art Center, the Lawndale Christian Health Center, the North Lawndale Greening Committee, and the Foundation for Homan Square, volunteers enthusiastically helped build bee apiaries, create murals, and installed artwork.
