Community Partners

Connect with us!

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is a leading student-centered university, linking the Piedmont Triad to the world through learning, discovery and service.  UNCG’s motto of “Service” is carried out in numerous ways across campus as students are encouraged to become involved in the life of the community.  Essential to this mission is developing and maintaining strong partnerships with local agencies, schools, nonprofit organizations and government agencies.  The Office of Leadership and Civic Engagement (OLCE) strives to be a bridge between the campus and the greater community.

Interested in partnering with UNCG and OLCE? First, consider connecting with us in the following ways, then check out our Partnership Opportunities for specific ways to collaborate.

We also include on-campus events, conference and professional development opportunities, and internship and job announcements that are related to civic leadership and service.
