This BlackBoard Community Site is a compilation of the various face-to-face activities, online links, and in-class resources that comprise the Hill Orientation Project. The Project was created beginning in November 2009, when Terri Baltimore, Director of Neighborhood Services at the Hill House Association, invited members of Duquesne's Office of Service-Learning to meet with her and a number of Hill Service Providers who were interested in exploring engagement between the Hill District and Duquesne University. In turn, the OSL invited other community engagement administrators to join that meeting.

During that conversation, some of the service providers asked how Duquesne students and faculty are oriented to the Hill District. They offered to assist with that orientation process. For the next year, the group worked together to develop a number of resources that vary from face-to-face events, online materials, and resources for class and group discussion.

We hope that you will use this orientation project to deepen your familiarity with the Hill District and its community leaders, residents, and organizations.
