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.

UNCG is dedicated to helping individuals tap into and contribute to local, national, and international conversations related to enacting high quality community engagement. In addition to the Collaboratory™, there are several listservs and blogs that focus on various scholarly and practical aspects of community engagement where you can share your work and see what others have shared.

Such activity can span disciplines through collaborations with public health, environmental issues, community education, neighborhood development, and others.
