UNC Asheville’s Civic Action Plan is grounded in the current UNC Asheville Strategic Plan and centers on deploying University assets in ways that maximize benefit for all involved in and touched by campus/community initiatives, partnerships and collaborations. The triple win means 1) students are prepared for effective societal engagement beyond college 2) faculty/staff are supported to enhance classroom learning with applied experiences in off-campus settings and 3) the local community (local/regional, state) gains a long-term partner in pursuing resilient community opportunities and in generating solutions to challenges.
