Relationships and alliances
Creating vibrant communities together
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
Community Relations represents UVic at off-campus events and to civic organizations. They stage community forums and support UVic participation in community initiatives. These include sponsorships, program partnerships and attendance at fundraising and charitable events. Visit the Community Relations site.
