UNCG scholars recognize and value the knowledge different individuals, groups, and organizations bring to the table. Together, we engage in reciprocal, mutually-beneficial partnerships to make a difference in our shared world. Our Institute for Community and Economic Engagement (ICEE) focuses on community engagement as a distinctive approach to teaching, research, and service. Through active scholarship and support for strategic initiatives, ICEE works to positively and sustainably transform communities, including academic ones, with a commitment to meaningful impact.
Collaboratory® is a publicly searchable, online database that shares an institutional story about who, what, where, with whom, and to what ends community-university partners are working towards community-identified priorities for shared learning and mutual benefits.
UNCG faculty, staff, and students are committed to working collaboratively to address pressing issues in our communities. We do this by engaging communities via teaching, research, creative activities, and service. Indeed, it is our authentic engagement that attracts students, faculty, and staff to our university.
Our Collaboratory collects information on your curricular-based community engagement activities and related partners/sites, as well as data on any public (engaged) scholarship, community-based research, outreach programs, community service and co-curricular activities that utilize community engagement principles, practices, and/or pedagogies.
Collaboratory supports ICEE’s effort to communicate our institutional story and connect faculty, staff, and community partners around shared community-identified priorities and passions. YOU can help ensure our whole story is shared by contributing your public service or community engagement work.
