Referral Desk

Many people know UNC Greensboro as a place to take classes or attend cultural events, athletics, and lectures – but UNC Greensboro 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 UNC Greensboro Referral Desk?

The Referral Desk, hosted by the Institute for Community and Economic Engagement (ICEE), is a user-friendly point of entry to UNC Greensboro for local community members and organizations. The Referral Desk is also available to members of UNC Greensboro 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?

UNC Greensboro 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 UNC Greensboro’s faculty, staff, and students (and vice versa!).
