Gwinnett County Advisory Task Force Report Released

After a series of five meetings since the task force was announced in February, the Rowen Foundation released the final report of its Gwinnett Community Advisory Task Force (G-CAT) on September 21, 2021.

The report includes 20 immediate, short- and long-term action items that the Foundation will advance to ensure Rowen delivers on its mission, vision and core principles in partnership with the Gwinnett community.

The Foundation will continue to build partnerships in 2022, expanding and diversifying ways for others in the county and state to engage with Rowen. The project has made significant progress since its announcement in August 2020 and anticipates site work beginning in 2022.
