Pitt's community partnerships have led to many innovative efforts, a number of which were firsts in the nation. The outcomes speak for themselves. New cases of AIDS in Allegheny County have declined 30 percent due in part to the University's AIDS Free Pittsburgh partnership. Ninety-five percent of those trained at Pitt's Manufacturing Assistance Center have found meaningful work. Five hundred individuals gained access to legal representation last year because of the School of Law’s legal clinics.
And that’s only the beginning. Pitt's Community Engagement Report (PDF) presents a sampling of those and other activities.
