Students and Community Members Plan Meeting May 8 to Define ‘Quality of Life’ in Geneseo


GENESEO, N.Y. - What does a "high quality of life" mean to Village of Geneseo residents?

That's a topic the Geneseo Healthy Campus Community Coalition has considered for many years and the organization asked SUNY Geneseo communications professor Mary Mohan to delve into the question with students from her class in Conflict, Negotiation, and Mediation.

The students will meet in small groups with members of the Geneseo community May 8 at 6:45 p.m. in the college's Milne Library Room 213 to reach an understanding of quality of life and how they can work together to achieve mutual goals. The gathering is free and open to all community members.

"Geneseo aspires to offer a high quality of life for all who live, work, attend college, shop, and visit our community," said Bob Bonfiglio, SUNY Geneseo's vice president for student and campus life. "We want to define what quality of life means to this community and what each of us can do to contribute to provide that quality. The results of this student/community effort will be a welcome starting point."

The Geneseo Healthy Campus Community Coalition has met regularly since 2003, striving to bring together all those who have a stake in the quality of life in the village, the stability of the village business community, and the well being of the College's students, to work side by side to build a better Geneseo.

More information on the forum is available on the event by contacting Mohan, Bonfiglio, or Rachel Pena from the Council on Alcohol and Substance Abuse of Livingston County.
