A brief description of the campus-community council or equivalent body that gives external stakeholders a regular voice in institutional decisions that affect them:
The University's Campus Design & Facility Development engages the community on a regular basis for any construction or major renovation project. External stakeholders include adjacent and nearby cultural, educational, and medical institutions; business organizations in the four-block nearby Craig Street district; and five local Registered Community Organizations that represent nearly 34,000 residents as well as less formal neighbor groups. Our 2022 Institutional Master Plan process will hold close to 50 meetings for these external stakeholders. Also, prominent members of the surrounding community, including the Mayor of Pittsburgh, are ex officio members of the Board of Trustees.
