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.
