Welcome to the Office of the Provost

The convergence of fiscal, political, economic, social and demographic changes has changed the very nature of what it means to be engaged in the work of higher education today.

Because of these changes, we find ourselves facing the most significant and complex external challenges we have ever encountered as a university. And we couldn’t be happier.

Guided by our strategic plan, we are working together to solidify UNC’s future in this new landscape by tapping into the imagination and inspiration of our faculty, staff and administrators to identify unique ways to address these challenges. We are proactively shaping our future and turning challenges into opportunities.

We believe that because we are like no other university in our commitment and passion for teaching and scholarship that engages and inspires students, we will not only meet these challenges but be an exemplar of what higher education will become in the 21st century.
