Community Engagement

UHV has made residential learning communities central to its plans, not only because of the benefits of increased retention and graduation rates, but also because increased engagement within these new learning environments means increased learning. By increasing student success through engagement, UHV wants first year students to be retained and to graduate, thus becoming role models for other students within the campus community and their communities at large.

Community engagement activities are incorporated into the Living and Learning Communities. Faculty work with community partners to identify activities that will complement their courses, capture the attention of the students, and contribute positively to some aspect of the community. 

Living & Learning connects with the following community partners to provide students with community engagement experiences:
