UNC Enrollment and Academic Achievement Data 

UNC recently underwent an extensive, multi-year evaluation of enrollment and academic achievement data as part of the university’s Strategic Enrollment and Student Success plan.

The data showed that our students are not reaching their goal of attaining a college education in a timely manner, and it was clear that equity gaps exist between White, non-Latino and Hispanic/Latinx-identifying students.
