Outreach in Our Local Community

We hold events at various locations throughout the year. Most of these events are open to the public, although those held at worksites are usually open only to staff of that employer.  See the “Audience” section of each entry to learn who is eligible to attend and then stop by to find out more about University Center or to speak with one of our staff members.
