UNCG’s Institute for Community and Economic Engagement (ICEE) offers support to faculty and administrators who are in positions where they review dossiers that include community-engaged research/creative activity/inquiry, teaching, and service activities and artifacts.

UNCG has embraced community-engaged scholarship officially within its promotion and tenure policies since 2010. Since 2014, all departments and units have been aligned to the university policy. However, questions still arise, such as “how do I effectively and fairly evaluate high-quality community-engaged scholarship?”

The ICEE offers resources and services such as:

  • P&T Resources
  • In-person Consultations
  • Support for Faculty to Conduct and Document their Engaged Work via “thought partners” and mentors
  • Workshops and Speakers Series

Upcoming Brown Bag Sessions:
Connecting to and Documenting Community-Engaged Scholarship at UNCG

These sessions will provide a brief overview of community engagement at UNCG. They will focus on best practices for identifying collaborators within the community, how to get the word out about your community engagement, and how to plan for documenting your community engagement for promotion, tenure, and/or annual reviews.
