UNCG’s Office of Research and Economic Development will change its name to the Office of Research and Engagement.
This name change, effective July 1, reflects and internal restructuring that more directly focuses on the university’s efforts on supporting and enhancing research, scholarship, and creative activity while continuing its strong commitment to community engagement. The name reflects our Carnegie Foundation classifications as an R2 research and community engaged university.
More information about the new structure will be available in the coming months.
