Scope and Contents

East Campus Community Organization (ECCO) is a community organization of people living in the area adjacent to East Campus, University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Many residents are professors or emeriti in colleges or employees of other units of East Campus.

The purpose of ECCO is for the residents of the community to get to know each other better. A newsletter is publishing informing the residents of upcoming events and suggestions on how the community can be improved. An annual meeting and dinner is held for the residents to discuss how East Campus Community can become a better neighborhood.

ECCO also serves the community as a pressure group. If the neighborhood needs a street light or something that will improve the community or benefit the residents, ECCO can approach the city of Lincoln as a group.

ECCO received a grant from the Nebraska Committee for the Humanities for an oral history project. The purpose of the oral history project was to give the residents information, dating back to the 1920s, on settlers who first resided in their neighborhood – their values, backgrounds and the architectual history of their homes. A total of forty four residents were interviewed. The final product was a tape-slide show written and produced by Keith Leudden. The tape-slide consists of interviews with some of the residents and slides of the community, past and present, showing changes that occurred.
