The Literacy Commons

Literacy Commons Logo

As a component of the Office for Community and Civic Engagement at UNC Pembroke, the Literacy Commons (LC) houses literacy-specific volunteer opportunities, community and co-curricular programming, and interdepartmental work to support the CARE Center and other CCE initiatives. 

The Literacy Commons prides itself on working across academic disciplines, across educational institutions, and across local communities.  Our volunteers are community members, students, and University professors and staff—all engaged in different academic disciplines and community contexts, contributing to the LC in different and unique ways. Ultimately, our overarching goal is to strengthen the connections between UNCP and our local community, where we all have one common bond: a simple love for learning, thinking, and doing.
