The Town Gown Collaborative is a joint effort between the City of Pullman, Pullman Chamber of Commerce, & Washington State University for the purpose of strengthening ties between town & gown for mutual benefit. The vision of this effort is: The Pullman Community and Washington State University foster and maintain a strong relationship, characterized by high levels of communication and collaboration. Utilizing shared resources, both entities work together to identify opportunities, leverage resources, and address areas of improvement. As a result of this strong relationship, Pullman is recognized as an exceptional college town.
The College Hill Association is an active participant in several collaborative efforts that are promoting College Hill neighborhood improvement.
A 2019 board meeting at the home of WSU President and First Lady Kirk and Noel Schulz exemplifies this productive relationship.
