125 Service Projects

North Carolina A&T State University is delivering on the core values of learning, excellence, integrity, respect, creativity, engagement and service. As a land grant university, N.C. A&T has a special responsibility to strategically partner with groups and individuals locally, nationally and globally to make a lasting, positive impact on social and environmental challenges that proactively respond to the needs of others.

In 2015, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching selected A&T to receive the Community Engagement Classification, an honor that reflects the university’s collaboration with local, national and global communities to improve teaching, learning scholarship and research. As the university celebrates 125 years, it is imperative that students, faculty, staff and alumni engage in their communities.

North Carolina A&T State University, School of Nursing Diabetes Education, Prevention, and Management Center under the leadership of Dr. Evelyn Hoover, partnered to plan and implement the 125th event with the Diabetes Community Action Group, the YMCA Greensboro, Cone Health Nutrition and Diabetes Center, and Cone Health Congregational Nurses to bring awareness to the community that type 2 diabetes can be prevented and complications prevented with the right nutrition and physical activity. Among the many exhibits were registered nurses who presented small group education. Nursing students screened for diabetes risk factors, measured blood pressure, took blood glucose levels, and provided a lot of education on hypertension and diabetes. A cooking demonstration was provided courtesy of SODEXCO (Cone Health) and faculty from Human Performance and Leisure Studies Department, School of Education lead many participants in physical activities.

    The School of Nursing third Annual Diabetes Awareness Walk

    The School of Nursing (SON) Community Engaged Scholarship Interest Group (CEIG), with Dr. Marychristiana Uzochukwu as the facilitator
    organized the SON third annual diabetes awareness walk. 56 people participated in this event, including the School of Nursing faculty, staff, and students;
    students from other disciplines on campus; and some nearby community members.

    The event was supported by the Cone Health Nutrition and Diabetes Center and the Minority Men’s Health Initiative who exhibited their respective community service information and shared valuable educational materials on prevention and management of type 2 diabetes with participants.

    Free flu vaccines supplied by the Cone Health Faith-based Nursing were provided to interested persons. In addition, monetary donations were made to the American Diabetes Association.

    It takes a community effort to narrow the gap of disparity created by type 2 diabetes among minority populations and eventually stop this disease in all populations.

It’s easy to imagine that these gift cards will go a very long way for groceries, clothes, medications, and incidentals.

Through our donations we were able to provide over 154 pairs of socks. Greg Rockwell from Thrive DC stated that, "154 pairs of socks means that we can give one pair to everyone who comes to us for breakfast one day. Which is a great Christmas surprise." We are truly happy that we are able to help bless others this holiday and winter season.

    Celebration Bowl Community Service Project

    On December 18 and 19, 2015, Aggies attending the Celebration Bowl in Atlanta, GA participated in the Celebration Bowl Community Service Project by donating toiletries and giving cash donations to support the Powerfully United Radically Equipped (P.U.R.E.) Youth Group's effort to collect items that will be given to the homeless community in Atlanta.  The cash donations were used to purchase blankets which is a must needed item in the homeless community since shelter is not always guaranteed.  Collectively, the Aggies provided over 35 blankets, 300 boxes of soap and countless other toiletry items.  One of the members of the youth group was able to come by the Chancellor's Reception and receive a large bag of items that had been donated along with a gift bag of Aggie Gear that was provided by alumnus Shandette Harper.  The remaining items were delivered to the P.U.R.E. Youth Group on Tuesday, December 22, 2015 for which they were extremely grateful as they immediately began to sort the items so that they could prepare the bags that would be given to the homeless community.  The Aggies only had a week to prepare but the response was tremendous which made this community service project a huge success.
