UNCW Engagement Conference Launches EngageSENC Web Platform

On Friday, Oct. 14, the University of North Carolina Wilmington held an all-day conference to promote ways for the university, local organizations and individuals to work together for the benefit of the community, called “Giving Flight to Engagement: Creating Positive Community-University Partnerships.”

The conference served as the public launch of the EngageSENC.org website platform, a community networking tool that is a collaborative effort of UNCW’s College of Health and Human Services, QENO (Quality Enhancement for Nonprofit Organizations), the United Way of Cape Fear, the South East Area Health Education Center (SEAHEC) and the Civic Leadership Project.

EngageSENC connects nonprofits, community members, local government, philanthropic interests, colleges and universities, decision makers and businesses in southeastern North Carolina. Users can find resources and faculty expertise on a wide range of issues, such as health care, human services, housing and education; identify opportunities for internships, volunteerism and community-based research; and interact with the university and with one another. Nonprofits and other agencies also have the opportunity to share information about their services. Look at the EngageSENC web platform here >
