Community Engagement

At the heart of this component is Lakehead’s desire for a relationship with the community. The plan will build a stronger, more vibrant relationship with the community through a “knowledge commons” and a commitment to students who face barriers to postsecondary education. A critical element is expanding working relationships with Aboriginal groups, school boards, municipal governments, non-profit groups, private businesses, and alumni. A comprehensive external relations plan that prepares the University to enter into a significant campaign is integral to greater community engagement.
