The Office of Leadership and Civic Engagement (OLCE) seeks to build strong, sustainable partnerships throughout Greensboro and the greater Central Piedmont region. Partnerships include organizations and interest groups that address local, national, and global community needs as well as provide our students opportunities to engage as active citizens.

The University and OLCE are concerned about the issues affecting the local community (specifically East Greensboro). OLCE's Six Societal Stimuli are Economic Development, Education, Hunger, Housing, Health, and Political Awareness.
