The Collaborative for the Common Good

Wingate University is committed to Faith, Knowledge, and Service and the way that the CCG contributes to this mission is by leveraging our gifts: our People, Processes, Research, Spaces, and Storytellers. We work with the many stakeholders in our community to make a difference! We leverage the gifts of the university to contribute to the well being of all our neighbors.
