Community Relations

Mission Statement

The Senate Community Relations Committee observes, engages in, and promotes relationships between the University of Pittsburgh and the broader community.


In the three-fold mission of the University (Teaching, Research and Public Service), community interfaces are frequent and deserve careful consideration and response.  Therefore, the goals of the Community Relations Committee are to:

  • understand and communicate the mutual needs and benefits of the University and its communities at their points of intersection;
  • increase collaboration with the University of Pittsburgh's Community Partners;
  • maintain awareness of activities; and
  • report its findings and recommendations at least annually to the Senate.
