Community engagement describes the collaboration between the University of Houston-Downtown (UHD) and its larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.
The purpose of UHD's community engagement is the partnership of knowledge and resources with the public and private sectors to enrich scholarship, research, and creative activity; enhance curriculum, teaching and learning; prepare educated, engaged citizens; strengthen democratic values and civic responsibility; address critical societal issues; and contribute to the public good.
The Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning is delighted to host the Community Partners Fair on Thursday, September 1st, 2016 in room A300 from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm. Representatives from community organizations in many different areas will be on hand to interact with students and describe some of their projects. Some organizations that will be attending include: American Red Cross, Catholic Charities, The Beacon, Vita-Living, Ronald McDonald House and many others. Please plan to attend and make connections for your classes and clubs, and for volunteering.
