Our History

Our history

After research on student retention and business involvement in our local colleges and universities, Action Greensboro in partnership with business leaders and higher education organizations launched the Fellows Program in 2016. 

As of today, the Campus Greensboro program has served more than 600 Fellows and continues to deliver real time, industry informed professional development opportunities for students throughout each year.

Past program participants are working, thriving and leading in our community every day.
