Dear Neighbor,

Welcome to the Neighborhood Relations website. As Dean of Students it is my responsibility–and pleasure–to serve as the university's neighborhood liaison. St. Ambrose is committed to working with you, our neighbors, as we build a strong neighborhood community for the benefit of all.

We believe that open lines of communication with our neighbors are essential. Our bi-annual (August and February) neighborhood update meetings have been a great way to share information–and listen to your feedback. Significant work has been done by the Neighborhood Relations Council, which is comprised of neighbors, SAU staff and city officials who are working toward a common vision for the neighborhood community.

In addition, the university is continually evaluating its use of on- and off-campus housing, the creation of additional parking, and its work with the City of Davenport as they enforce on-street parking regulations. We are encouraging off-campus students–over which the university has limited authority outside of the classroom– to take responsibility for being respectful neighbors.

An additional communication resource is our Neighborhood Resources Flyer (pdf), detailing contacts for assistance when issues arise. St. Ambrose will continue to work closely with our neighbors and city officials to identify additional neighborhood initiatives.

I'd like to specifically welcome our newest neighbors near the St. Vincent's Center property. Please know that continued dialogue is a priority and we welcome and appreciate your feedback and input.

I encourage you to get involved in our shared neighborhood community for the benefit of all. Please do not hesitate to contact me.
