Community Engagement for University-Community Collaborations: Connecting Pittsburgh community partners with Carnegie Mellon University resources

Community Engagement for University-Community Collaborations: Connecting Pittsburgh community partners with Carnegie Mellon University resources Online

Join us either in person or virtually for an event to improve, build on and expand the connections between Carnegie Mellon University resources and the Pittsburgh community. CMU resources such as the Libraries and Sustainability Initiative can be leveraged by users not affiliated with the university, but barriers can prevent them from fully engaging.

The conversation features representatives from CMU departments and local organizations about the community engagement efforts currently underway at CMU and opportunities to improve upon them. Speakers will highlight current and ongoing projects and share resources to support future collaboration.

Lunch will be provided!
