Community Engagement

Public engagement is an essential component of a land-grant university. The University of Connecticut at Waterbury recognizes, supports, and encourages service, outreach, and public engagement through a wide variety of activities and programs. Members of the UConn-Waterbury community routinely collaborate with business and community partners to impact every aspect of daily life in towns and cities throughout the Greater Waterbury area.

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at UConn Waterbury is where we come to expand our minds and connect with other seasoned learners. As an OLLI member, you open the door to endless opportunities for intellectual and social stimulation. Whether you are here solely to take classes or want to partake in the myriad of other OLLI activities, you are in for a treat. We are glad you’ve discovered us.

UConn Waterbury offers rental space in our Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) for special events, such as workshops and seminars, during normal business hours. That space can accommodate up to 225 people seated auditorium style, or broken down into 3 smaller rooms.
The MPR room is also equipped with state of the art IT equipment.
