Community Engagement Advisory Board

The UNCW Community Engagement Advisory Board is a representative advisory committee of faculty, staff, students, and community representatives that assist with coordinating and developing policies and procedures to facilitate engagement. The Advisory Board also selects small community engagement seed grant recipients, recognizes and rewards outstanding engagement activities, supports volunteerism and community service, and identifies signature projects for the university to pursue.

Members were nominated and appointed by the Associate Vice Chancellor for Community Engagement for a 2-calendar year term. The Board meets 3 times a year.
