UNC Rural, created in 2019 and housed in the UNC Office of the Provost, aims to provide resources that help build and strengthen community-campus partnerships throughout North Carolina. This virtual panel discussion will provide background on UNC Rural’s current work and also focus on the tenets of effective community-campus partnership through the perspective of community-based partners, nonprofits and academics. Community leaders, nonprofits, students and UNC faculty and staff all benefit when community-campus partnerships are strengthened and supported, especially in rural areas which may have been historically underrepresented.

A Carolina Engagement Week Event
Carolina Engagement Week is your chance to explore the impact of community-driven partnerships powered by state and local community leaders and Carolina researchers. By attending one or more sessions, you’ll walk away with a deeper understanding of the methods and collaborative approaches that are working effectively throughout different parts of North Carolina. You can also identify new opportunities to engage in community initiatives around the state designed to create social and economic impact.
