Economic Engagement

The University of North Carolina is committed to working with community, regional and statewide partners to help lead the state through the challenges and opportunities our global economy offers.  We believe our campuses have a unique capacity and responsibility to produce high-quality graduates with the skills and abilities to work in our state's most important businesses and organizations.  We start new enterprises.  We work in partnership with businesses, agencies and organizations throughout the state to create a better quality of life for all North Carolinians.

Our work in economic engagement is a top priority of President Tom Ross and of the UNC Board of Governors, as recognized in the UNC strategic plan adopted by the Board of Governors in January 2013.

We look forward to working with you to help North Carolina live out the words of the state, as a place "where the weak grow strong and the strong grow great."

Let us know how we can assist you.
