Community Engagement

Pitt aspires to be a university that strengthens our communities. Through community engagement, we bring together the best of education and research with the strengths, assets, and agendas of our communities to ensure that the benefits of this great university are enjoyed by all.

The Office of Community and Governmental Relations (CGR) acts as a point of contact to support this institutional mission, bridging internal and external stakeholders to forge new collaborations.
