Join Us in Building a Stronger, More Connected University Circle Community
Grace’s Community creates a stronger, more connected University Circle community while offering you an opportunity to make a lasting impact.
At the heart of Grace’s Community is Grace herself, a lovable and spirited puppy who serves as UCI's community policing dog. Grace's role is to build bridges of trust and community throughout University Circle, fostering a sense of unity and helping to strengthen the bond between UCI officers, residents, institutions, and businesses; she perfectly embodies UCI’s commitment to helping foster a sense of community.
When you join Grace as a community builder, you'll see for yourself the amazing strides UCI and our partners are making to build a lively and inclusive neighborhood through community gatherings, neighborhood improvements, community safety initiatives (like Grace!), and empowering arts engagement.
Help us spread Grace’s community-building message today with your monthly gift to University Circle Inc.
