Campus Community ConnectionWelcome to the Campus Community Connection

The Campus Community Connection encourages students and faculty at the University of Maryland to explore community-based projects with local government jurisdictions. Project goals are aimed at greater sustainability and resiliency for the University and its surrounding community, strengthening ties between the campus and its neighbors, and fulfilling academic objectives while providing real-world experience and visible results for participants.

Participating communities include Prince George’s County, the City of College Park, the City of Hyattsville, the Town of Riverdale Park and the Town of University Park.  These jurisdictions have identified 80 projects to collaboratively achieve with the University.
