N.C. A&T Scores Big with Union Square Partnership

The greater Greensboro community has anxiously awaited the opening of the Union Square Campus for several years. The ribbon cutting ceremony finally arrived on Friday, Aug. 5 and no other entity was as excited or proud as North Carolina A&T State University.

As one of the campus’ inaugural and pioneering tenants, along with the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Guilford Technical Community College, and Cone Health, N.C. A&T will house its accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Registered Nurse-Bachelor of Science in Nursing Completion entry programs.

The partnership is a result of A&T’s continued effort and commitment to remain on the cutting edge in collaboration and innovation. As a stakeholder and tenant of the Union Square Campus, the university continues to fulfill the mandates and requirements necessary to obtain its strategic goals of Preeminence 2020.

"Union Square Campus is an innovative approach to training our future leaders in health care. It will redefine traditional methods and is a way to strengthen public and private partnerships here in the Triad,” said Chancellor Harold L. Martin Sr. “It’s exciting to see this national model unfold.”

The 84,000 square feet campus, replete with state-of-the-art simulation and virtual technology will allow A&T’s School of Nursing to create transformational learning experiences for all of its nursing students. With highly-skilled nurses projected to continue to be in high demand, A&T is preparing a professional workforce as well as industry leaders.     

Addressing an overflowing crowd, in the 340-seat auditorium, Pat Danahy, Union Square Campus board chairman, applauded the inaugural tenants for being part of a model of collaboration and funding that will yield dividends throughout the immediate community and for the common good.
