  • Gannon University has a rich history of service to Erie and the surrounding community. In the summer of 2010, Gannon took its commitment to service and to the community one step further with the launch of the Erie-Gannon Alliances to Improve Neighborhood Sustainability (Erie-GAINS) initiative, a long-term, mutually beneficial community initiative designed to expand the University's efforts to support the common good of our neighborhood. While the University will continue to serve throughout the Erie region, across the United States and in various countries, Erie-GAINS will aid the University in focusing its efforts to maximize its impact in a well-defined, contiguous and manageable University neighborhood. Erie-GAINS coordinates strategic initiatives between the University, government agencies, community organizations and businesses to stimulate positive change and improve the sustainability and viability of downtown Erie and the neighborhoods surrounding campus. The initiative will bring greater focus to Gannon's existing efforts aimed at experiential learning, such as internships and co-ops, service-learning projects, civic engagement, community service, research and programming by focusing on urban development issues including, but not limited to, education, health and well-being, the economy, public safety, neighborhood revitalization and the environment.
