Community Involvement

In 2006, UAA was designated by the Carnegie Commission as one of the first set of "Community Engaged" universities, affirming that UAA has designated community engagement in its identity, culture, and commitments.  The College of Engineering engages in projects of strategic significance to UAA,  the College of Engineering and our community.  The links on this page give you a snapshot of some of our current activities.
