    University Outreach & Engagement

    University Outreach & Engagement is responsible for developing and maintaining relationships with individuals and entities of public and private sectors. We serve as an information resource and a point of contact for members of the community-at-large on behalf of the University. We interface with the public and community leaders to identify and implement programs that benefit both the university and the community. We promote the University as a resource to the state and region. We are about community.

    How we serve the University external/internal communities. 

    We listen. We exchange ideas. We research. We nurture partnerships. We develop niches and new projects that are relevant to the University as well as to Rhode Island. We form strategies. We connect people. We broker resources like talent, experience, and leadership between the University and the community at-large. Thanks to the Town of Bristol/RWU Cooperative Committee the University has incredibly close ties to our local community, and an open venue for discussion and decision making.
