From taking on the opioid epidemic to re-envisioning the liberal arts for the modern world, researchers at UNC Greensboro are making an impact. Our scholars are transforming the lives of students, strengthening our communities, and driving new discoveries.

Read about our impactful, community-engaged research in the fall edition of UNCG Research Magazine, now available online at researchmagazine.uncg.edu.

The magazine’s interactive website includes feature-length and shorter articles, faculty and student profiles, image galleries, and more. The current issue and previous issues are also available in PDF format.
