Empowering more North Carolinians – of every family background and economic situation – to earn a college degree has always been at the heart of our land-grant mission to solve problems and fuel prosperity. We’re proud to be the real-world university of the people.
That’s why, through our Think and Do the Extraordinary Campaign, we’re reaffirming our commitment to access and affordability for scholars from across our state. We’re reaffirming our belief in the importance and urgency of investing in the potential of every single North Carolina student, especially those from counties and rural communities that others might leave behind, those who are the first in their families to attend college and those from groups underrepresented in higher education.
We’re keeping our promise of access. We’re making sure doors stay open and there’s room in our Pack.
There is unmet need for our students here on campus. Being able to close that gap and meet those needs would be incredible for supporting our students and would be an unbelievable investment in the university and in the state.
