Many people know UNCG as a place to take classes or attend cultural events, athletics, and lectures – but UNCG offers much more than that. As an anchor institution in Greensboro, we are committed to working together with fellow members of our community to strengthen our individual knowledge and common purpose – making a meaningful impact on the community as a whole. Making a difference can be hard, but finding a partner doesn’t have to be.
What is the UNCG Referral Desk?
The Referral Desk, hosted by the Institute for Community and Economic Engagement, was created to serve as a user-friendly point of entry to UNCG for local community members and organizations. The Referral Desk is also available to members of UNCG who are interested in working with the community or connecting with faculty in other disciplines as part of their teaching or research.
How does it work?
UNCG is committed to providing personalized attention to community inquiries and requests, as well as excellent and clear communication about the ways in which individuals, groups, organizations, and sectors connect to UNCG’s faculty, staff, and students (and vice versa!).
The Referral Desk can be reached during business hours via both telephone and email:
(a staff member will respond to your inquiry within 48 business hours!)
UNCG Resource Directory
ICEE has created an online directory of publicly accessible resources at UNCG, which is available at communityengagement.uncg.edu. The directory speaks to members of the UNCG and greater community in lay terms – helping them to learn about and access the different types of connections they can make within and beyond the University. The directory shares resources and services across 8 categories:
- academic engagement
- clinics, camps, and services
- economic and social innovation
- tap UNCG talent
- research and evaluation
- community resources
Looking for the Nonprofit Evaluation Support Program?
The UNCG Referral Desk serves as the intake mechanism for nonprofit organizations inquiring about the Nonprofit Evaluation Support Program (NESP). Interested organizations may call the Referral Desk and share more information about their request, which will be forwarded onto NESP staff members if appropriate.
