The Campaign for UNC

It's about you and your university

UNC is about people. A community of uncommon people – alumni, donors, friends, faculty, staff and students – made strong by their diversity, creativity and ingenuity and united by the transformative education hallmark to the UNC experience.

The Campaign for UNC is our public charge to, together, boldly support UNC’s uniqueness and advance its mission. We are – You are – the community that makes UNC what it is and, more importantly, what it is capable of becoming.

Making our Future

UNC is thriving. We’re more diverse than ever before. Our community is rapidly growing and increasingly engaged. And talented Bears are making an impact around the globe. So, why launch the Campaign for UNC? Why now?

The University faces a challenging new reality. State funding for public universities is declining with no expectation of recovery to preexisting levels. Rapidly advancing technologies require continuous improvements and adaptation, which are often costly. And recruitment of talented students and top faculty is increasingly competitive.
