Redefining Collaboration: Communities in Eastern N.C. Come Together to Work Together

Redefining Collaboration: Communities in Eastern N.C. Come Together to Work Together

In mid-November, two MDC staff members had the privilege of traveling to the eastern part of the state to hold two of these work sessions: one in Brunswick County, including leaders from New Hanover County; and one in Beaufort County, including leaders from Pitt and Martin Counties, as well. Though distinct in geography and history, these regions in the Southern and Northern parts of the state have a lot in common—people in leadership who care about their community and are striving for deeper cross-sector coordination; a mixture of urban and rural areas, each with unique needs; and strong, higher education institutions that are determined to expand access to all residents in their service areas.
