UNCG's integrative approach becomes evident when looking at the numbers: "According to data from 2012-2014, the six-year graduation rate for black students at UNCG is nearly 60 percent – compared to a national average of 45 percent." Moreover, while the national graduation gap between white and black students is 19.3 percentage, black students at UNCG graduate at higher rates than their white classmates.
In collaboration with The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) the GO Center co-hosted their Study Abroad Alumni Event at HQ Greensboro. The global connections established through study abroad programs are important for the cultural competence and international trade in the Triad. For example, products like Miss Jenny's Pickles are produced in North Carolina but exported to countries like China.
Since the GO Center aims to be a connecting global hub, the opportunity to come to downtown Greensboro also exists for other organizations.
The renovated Old Greensborough Gateway Center will house tenants including engineers, product designers, and other members of the "creative class." The space is going to open mid-to-late summer.
