Connecting with the Community
For 173 years, Greensboro College has been committed to becoming a cooperative and collaborative community partner to schools, health and human service agencies, organizations, governments, institutions and communities who impact the life of all people of Greensboro and beyond.
We believe that through our support of community program initiatives already in progress and as an advocate to address additional needed ones, we can aid in building a society where more of us will listen, learn, work and live in a spirit of acceptance, inclusiveness and greater support of one another.
