A one stop destination cataloguing and promoting information about all university-wide on- and off-campus events, projects, workshops, camps and other programs and activities. Using our highly interactive “talent” repository, community, school and partner needs can be matched with the most precise university expertise. This e-dialogue offers a venue through which the university, community and schools can publish or advertise opportunities, events, resource or service needs or to merely interact and exchange ideas via a collegial e-chat venue.
With an indefatigable cadre of faculty who are proficient in their respective fields, UNC Asheville offers training and development programs for both personal achievement and career advancement. These dynamic, robust and highly interactive training programs contain the most innovative advances in research and pedagogy within a myriad of disciplines. Professional development programs, mentorship and collaborations expand training and education in areas where school districts may have difficulty meeting such needs on their own.
The only four-year liberal arts university in the area, UNC Asheville is well-poised to pave the way for students in the region to attend a prestigious university close to home. The university identifies “seek[ing] and serv[ing] North Carolina’s most promising students, regardless of need, and facilitat[ing] their path to graduation” as a strategic priority.

We promote “out-of-the box” and innovative approaches to adapt the university’s outreach into partner-specific techniques and activities that are meaningful and impactful. UNC Asheville is committed to meeting the needs of its local and regional school districts by expanding and enriching campus initiatives, such as the provision of comprehensive tutor and mentor training programs. We share a combined commitment with schools and communities to make higher educational accessible and affordable to our aspiring next generation leaders. UNC Asheville is steadfast in becoming the region’s higher education destination.
