Engaging in the Recovery Efforts

Because of the university’s ongoing community partnerships with nonprofits and agencies around the region, UNCW was uniquely able to compile resources and communications from a wide variety of reliable sources and make them available in one place.

“UNCW’s community and region are still recovering, and the work continues,” said Kristin Brogdon, interim associate vice chancellor for community engagement and director of the Office of the Arts. “We are developing ways that our students, faculty and staff can work with community partners in service, teaching and research. Beyond recovery, our office hopes to be a part of the regional conversation about capacity-building so we can all be better prepared for future storms.”
UNCW’s Office of Community Engagement and the Office of Student Leadership and Engagement have developed a list of “Recovery Partners,” based on the organizations and agencies with whom the university has existing Community Engagement relationships, including partners in Brunswick, Pender and Onslow counties.
