Creating vibrant communities together
Welcome to Community Relations
The Community Relations department builds and maintains links between the university and its various external communities. It serves an outreach role to the wider community by:
- organizing educational, cultural and networking events
- sharing information with community leaders
- providing advice and support for university initiatives that link to the public
We represent UVic at off-campus events and to civic organizations. We stage community forums and support UVic participation in community initiatives. These include sponsorships, program partnerships and attendance at fundraising and charitable events.
Initiatives requiring financial support will be reviewed via application to the External Relations Community Relations sponsorship fund.
To strategically focus relationship-building initiatives to advance the educational and research mission of the university.
A robust network of alliances among individuals, agencies, and other institutions contributing to the social, cultural, and economic health of UVic and the wider community.
