What is community-university engagement?

Community-university engagement (CUE) is a term that describes the intentional relationship between a university and its larger community (this can include local as well as national and international community members, organizations, businesses, government, etc.). The goal of these relationships is to build a mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources that can contribute to more sustainable, just and healthy communities.

Ways to engage

At UVic, we're committed to working with our community to make a vital impact on issues that matter to people, places and the planet. Check out the links below for ways that you can engage with UVic to make a difference. 

We acknowledge and respect the Lkwungen People on whose traditional territory the university stands and the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.
