Community Outreach

Welcome to the UBEOC Community Outreach and Partnerships page. We have developed a series of signature events to engage our community partners that are both educational and entertaining. Signature Events  are designed to recruit students to the UBEOC, retain those who have decided to attend classes here, engage with and outreach to the community, and develop a signature brand. Here you will find more information, including several of UBEOC’s signature events.
