Has the institution adopted a framework for community stakeholder engagement in governance, strategy and operations?:
Yes

A brief description of the policies and procedures that ensure community stakeholder engagement is applied systematically and regularly across the institution’s activities:

"In an attempt to fully realize a true assessment of the engagement and development culture at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington (whose mission, along with other institutes of higher education, includes teaching, research and service), the Office of Community Partnerships - a unit within the Chancellor's division, developed a comprehensive institutional assessment tool that combines characteristics that make an impact on both regional community and economic engagement and development. These characteristics relate to the university's mission, leadership and internal structural elements, the cultural and innovative activities (research, educational opportunities, programs and engagement), the openness to accessibility and recognition and the understanding of the existence of reciprocal relationship between the university and external community, recognizing its contributions and perspective.
In several departments and areas at UNCW, the campus and the community meet regularly to discuss issues, priorities, and related assets; however, we strive to achieve an increased amount of coordination between the campus and community to leverage university assets to support and enhance these regional activities and to enhance the impact of the students' educational experience. Individual departments and areas on campus may have a process that involves community members in assessing and identifying local and regional needs that the campus can address. The Campus Outreach Council was created in December 2012 to encourage communication across disciplines regarding engagement activities." UNCW Community and Economic Engagement Assessment Report 2013-2014


A brief description of how the institution identifies and engages community stakeholders, including any vulnerable or underrepresented groups:

"At the University of North Carolina Wilmington, we value developing, preserving, and expanding sustainable partnerships with community members and organizations for mutual benefit of UNCW community (faculty, staff and students) and regional community and meeting regional and economic needs including developing a skilled workforce to solve issues"
