Welcome to Community Engagement at the University of Calgary
As a foundational goal in the Eyes High vision and strategy, the University of Calgary is committed to fully integrate with the community, engaging the communities we both serve and lead.
The Community Engagement team actively seeks out partnership opportunities with community organizations, not-for-profits and other educational institutions. We build on existing relationships, create new associations and endeavor to enhance the university’s role in the community. We also lead institutional events and support our faculties and other units in their community outreach activities.
We are pleased to support agencies like the United Way that provide individuals and families the opportunity to reach their potential and improve their quality of life. The university kicked off its 2012 United Way Campaign on October 1 with the goal of raising $350,000. The campaign was a tremendous success raising more than $354,000!
Supporting and promoting the ingenuity of Calgary’s youth, the Calgary Youth Science Fair (CYSF) returned to the University of Calgary for its second year in April 2013. The university is a proud platinum sponsor of the CYSF.
We work with the City of Calgary on a number of municipal priorities and community associations like the South Shaganappi Area Strategic Planning Group - allowing us to collaborate with other leaders in our surrounding community.
