USD in the Community

As an anchor institution in the San Diego region, USD relies on the Office of Community and Government Relations to build the capacity of our civic and community partnerships so that our connection to the community deepens and grows.  Using Envisioning 2024 as our foundation, we join with the community in the hopes of improving K-12 education, enhancing economic development, promoting health care, and serving as a catalyst for community development. This work advances USD as the leading faith-based, anchor university in the United States. 

USD is a proud part of Linda Vista and while many of our community partnerships are local, they also extend beyond the borders of our campus and nation. The Office of Community and Government Relations works closely with Mulvaney Center to support and expand community engagement with neighbors, the wider San Diego community, policy-makers and other elected officials in addition to our community partners.
