Saturday Service

This isn't your run-of-the-mill Founders Day. This year, the entire UNCG community — alumni, students, faculty and staff — are invited to participate in a day of service on Saturday, Oct. 6. What better way to mark our origins than by living the university's motto of service? Read more about what's in store.

Approaching the Summit

The powerful combination of businesses and universities will be the topic of the day Oct. 23 at the second annual UNCG Business Summit (formerly the Corporate Expo). David J. Bronczek, president and CEO of Memphis-based FedEx Express, will be the keynote speaker. Read more about Bronczek and summit events.

Creative Business

Some might say entrepreneurship is an essential ingredient of a liberal arts education. UNCG agrees. Building Entrepreneurial Learning for Life, or BELL, is starting this fall and will ensure that students, regardless of their majors, will be exposed to the world of starting and operating not-for-profit as well as for-profit enterprises. Read more about what this will mean for campus.

Have Your Say

The UNC system wants to hear from you. What are the most important challenges facing your community and how can the university campuses help? What programs and services should the university offer? What knowledge and skills do our students need to be prepared for the jobs of tomorrow? Read more about how you can express your opinion on these and other matters.

Alumni Association Announcements & Upcoming Events

Plan ahead for a party on the lawn, Schmooza Palooza, a golf tournament and more. Read more about these and other events for alumni.
