Creating Community Connections to Inspire our Future Generations
UNCW’s Chancellor’s Office of Community Partnerships enhances and supports UNCW’s vision by connecting the university to the region it serves with innovative and strategic partnerships, accountability, communication and policy. As one of 17 member institutions of the University of North Carolina system, UNCW embraces the commitment to service that defines the university as a whole.
Service to the state has always been a core part of the University’s mission. As a public institution, UNCW is focused on the kind of research, scholarship and outreach that will benefit all citizens of North Carolina.
That means conducting research and scholarship that will help improve the economy and the civic life of the state and ensuring that new discoveries are readily shared. It means sending our students and faculty into communities across North Carolina to help solve local problems, finding out where the University can assist local governments and nonprofits, and helping North Carolina businesses and industries become more competitive.
