What is Zipnic?

Statement of Purpose

Event description: Zipnic is a “party with a purpose.”  It is a community engagement event held at Buchtel Field in which both students and residents are invited.  Zipnic invitees are those students and residents living in the neighborhoods south of campus (with potential future expansion).  The event is sponsored by many University of Akron departments and organizations as well as University Park businesses so that it is provided free of charge to participants.

Purpose: To provide University of Akron students and community residents in the neighborhoods surrounding campus an opportunity to engage each other and strengthen the communities in which they live.

Goals:

  • To foster a sense of connection/ engagement between the students and community members who live in the neighborhoods surrounding campus.

  • To distribute appropriate and effective preventative safety information to students and community members in a fun atmosphere.

  • To promote a stronger sense of safety in the neighborhoods surrounding the University of Akron campus in which students and community members live and work.

  • To provide a forum for residents to engage with law enforcement representatives in a proactive environment.
