The Netter Center has announced that the Southeast Regional Coalition for University-Assisted Community Schools (SRCUACS) will be the nation’s 6th University-Assisted Community School (UACS) Regional Training Center!

The Netter Center shared that “this is the first regional center anchored by not one but three higher eds: North Carolina Central University, a public historically Black university; East Carolina University, a public university; and Duke University, a private university.

The SRCUACS will convene colleges, universities and their partners within North Carolina and across the region to develop a coalition dedicated to enhancing existing UACS and to creating new UACS partnerships and programs.

This new regional center has created a sign up for its newsletter and announced a schedule of monthly calls for its inaugural year.”

More information can also be found in the article published in Duke Today.  The Coalition is excited to continue to support the work of UACS, and looks forward to seeing the impact of  the SRCUACS!
