New service helps community connect with UNCG
Article by Mike Harris
It’s a new service aimed at helping individuals and organizations within or outside of UNCG connect to the university.
The Referral Desk will serve as a portal for community inquiries about services and resources provided by UNCG, as well as opportunities for mutually beneficial knowledge exchange partnerships. It also will serve as the point source for inquiries received through REACH NC (a UNC System-sponsored database of university expertise and scholarship that is currently in the final stages of development).
You can call or refer others to ICEE’s Referral Desk (336-505-8994, firstname.lastname@example.org) or point them to the new web site Community & Friends, which includes references to various services and opportunities, as well as the Community Engagement Collaboratory, a database of hundreds of community-UNCG projects and partnerships.
For more information, contact Kristin Medlin, ICEE communications and partnerships manager, at email@example.com, or visit http://communityengagement.uncg.edu/referraldesk.aspx.
