Community Involvement

Mason Square is more than the buildings that surround it. Mason Square is a destination; a place to convene, gather, exchange ideas, and have fun. Mason's standard of excellence extends to the community at large. The university’s contributions to quality of life, together with the billions of dollars the university contributes to the economy, truly make Mason an important and engaged partner with the local community.

To learn more about Mason's engagement with the surrounding community, visit the Community and Local Government Relations website.
