Council Mission and Vision

Neighborhood Relations Council (NRC) History & Purpose: The Neighborhood Relations Council (NRC) was formed in September, 2008, in response to concerns with the neighborhoods surrounding the St. Ambrose University campus. Neighbors expressed concerns about lack of communication between the University and neighbors, poor student behavior in the neighborhoods, changing demographics within the neighborhoods, and lack of understanding about what City services existed and how to access these services.

The purpose was to bring together University representatives, City staff, and concerned neighbors to forge common understanding and affective solutions to problems. Membership includes representatives from surrounding neighborhoods, City resource staff, and University personnel as noted below.


The vision of the NRC is to create a model for communication, innovation, conflict resolution, service response, neighborhood stability and University operation through a spirit of mutual regard and respect for all individuals in their living, learning and work environments. (Draft 12/10/08)


The mission of the NRC is to build positive relationships among the City of Davenport, St. Ambrose University and the neighbors directly surrounding the main campus toward management of the University's growth and improvement of the quality of life for the surrounding neighborhoods. (Draft 12/10/08)
