Pitt Pandemic Service Initiative
Over the course of the Covid-19 Pandemic Pitt staff, faculty, and student volunteers have and continue to mobilize to help support the critical needs of our neighbors and communities. The Pitt Pandemic Service Initiative is currently not actively processing new inquiries for volunteers.
However, there are several ways to remain engaged. View new volunteer opportunities through the PittServes Volunteer Portal; contact the Office of Community and Governmental Relations directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, and sign up for volunteer and engagement updates via CGR newsletters here.
Learn more about the pandemic service initiative and Pitt’s continued commitment to addressing critical community challenges at community.pitt.edu.
In Partnership with the Provost
CGR partners with the Office of the Provost to undertake activities that advance, elevate and celebrate the practices of community engagement.
Three current collaborations that support the University's institutional efforts to deepen and enhance community engagement are to:
- Lead a Staff Community of Practice to convene staff across campus who support outreach and engagement.
- Present the Community-Engaged Scholarship Forum as a platform to present community-engaged work, discover new avenues of partnership, network with those who do similar work and celebrate Pitt's commitment to community engagement.
- Lead a working group to define course attributes that will be used to track community engagement in the curriculum.
