Welcome to Community Engagement
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.
Supporting our Community
In the emergency and recovery of the June 2013 floods, Albertans displayed remarkable acts of bravery, resilience and compassion. Many students, faculty and staff from the University of Calgary were nominated as Alberta’s Heroes of the Flood .
We are pleased to support agencies like the United Way Calgary and Area that provide individuals and families the opportunity to reach their potential and improve their quality of life.
Our students, faculty and researchers are actively involved in community engaged learning through the Centre for Community Engaged Learning and community focused research through platforms like the Urban Alliance and makeCalgary.
Connecting with Community
We collaborate with the City of Calgary on a number of municipal priorities and our community neighbors through the South Shaganappi Area Strategic Planning Group.
The Community Engagement team works closely with the Office of the Chancellor and Senate. The University of Calgary's Senate includes 62 valued community ambassadors who help build relationships for the benefit of the university and the community.
