Grogan Residential College is a two year, residential and academic program that serves undergraduate students interested in majors in UNCG’s professional schools (the Bryan School of Business and Economics; School of Education; School of Health and Human Sciences; School of Music, Theatre and Dance, and School of Nursing) as well as those interested in pre-professional programs: Pre Veterinary Medicine, Pre Medicine, Pre Pharmacy, and Pre Dentistry. Grogan College also serves as a “teaching innovations lab” where UNCG faculty develop new and more effective approaches to teaching and learning. Through its unique residential environment, dedicated faculty, innovative CORE courses and related experiential learning opportunities, Grogan College helps students to develop the skills, competencies and sense of purpose needed for sustained professional success.
