Speaker Series

logoTo propel UNCG’s momentum as a community-engaged university, each year UNCG brings nationally and locally renowned community engagement scholar-practitioners to campus to engage with faculty, staff, students, and community colleagues. Speakers facilitate discussions on key aspects of engagement, including capacity development for engaged teaching, learning, research, and creative activity; expansion of policies, structures, and paradigms to support engagement; and alignment of institutional and community priorities through engagement.
