Town and Gown

The purpose of the Town and Gown Task Force is to foster and facilitate a positive and mutually beneficial relationship among the College, City and Community.

Town and Gown Task Force Committee

Our Goal

The Town and Gown Advisory Committee will serve as a channel for representatives from the college and community to discuss mutually relevant issues that impact the campus and city. These issues may include, but are not limited to, items identified by the Town and Gown Task Force, such as student behavior, mobility, transparency of growth, and derelict housing/landlord responsibilities.

The advisory committee will also review the City of St. Augustine’s Citizen Review Survey results and utilize those results as a benchmark for improving communication. The committee will make recommendations to the City of St. Augustine Commission and staff and Flagler College administration regarding programs or policies they deem relevant to improving the relationship between the city, college and residents.
