May 2016 Commencement

UNCG is one of thirty-one colleges and universities picked to be part of the Frontier Set project, financed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Part of the funding will be used to create a summer bridge program, which will begin in 2018. The bridge program will provide incoming UNCG students with an opportunity to prepare for college and take college courses. Other activities will include expansion and improvement of online academic support services, including academic advising and career coaching.
