Campaign for UNC Priorities 

The impactS abound

The Campaign for UNC was our first-ever comprehensive, university-wide fundraising effort. Spanning three years and with a goal of raising $45 million, the Campaign for UNC invited donors to focus their investment on five fundamental priorities, each necessary to build the future of our university.

  • Scholarships
  • Faculty Development
  • Programs
  • Research
  • The Campus Commons

Although the Campaign for UNC ended on December 31, 2018, the collective impact of donor support from the campaign will be seen in all areas of campus for many more years to come. Learn more about the immediate impact of the campaign below. 



Life-Changing Education

For students and families, scholarships can provide the financial relief they need for college to become a reality, not just a dream. Scholarships can help attract students from under-represented populations and help more students complete a degree. Scholarships are also necessary to recruit talented students, helping UNC maintain excellence in academics, arts and athletics.

Building Student Success

The new Campus Commons will house an integrated student support hub designed to help students set a clear path to graduation and eliminate barriers to success. This innovative facility will be a singular gateway to the heart of UNC, providing a central home for campus visitors and modern performance and gallery space for our world-class arts programs.

Faculty Development


Our beloved faculty are key to the transformative educational experience at UNC. Faculty support helps UNC to continue to recruit and retain top faculty members and gives current faculty opportunity to maintain leading knowledge and innovative teaching methods.



Distinction in education includes a variety of student experiences in and out of the classroom. Support for UNC’s unique array of programs helps students flourish as responsible citizens in a dynamic, diverse and global society.



UNC faculty connect innovative teaching with relevant research for a passionately different approach to education for our students. Support for student and faculty research helps prepare students for their future careers by giving them experience and access that is uncommon at other universities.
