Government and Community Relations

The Office of Government and Community Relations serves as the University’s liaison to elected officials, public agencies, and our community. The goal of the office is to develop and maintain relationships, to provide public visibility, awareness, and support for the University’s mission and to link campus resources with public policy. This is accomplished through program services to the community, and in partnership with federal, state and local officials.
