UNC Greensboro proudly partners with organizations and individuals who share our vision of a better North Carolina for all.
“Being able to give back to the community that I grew up in was rewarding. I gained valuable insight into how younger people interact with each other in a multicultural setting, especially when different cultures are presented as valid and equal through the acceptance of their music.”
– Triston Broadway ’22, former PAL student and teacher
With a motto of “service,” Spartans drive purposeful change for the betterment of North Carolinians and beyond. The nurses in your doctor’s office, the accountant on main street, and the teacher in the classroom are Spartans who create remarkable real-world impact, every day. This pursuit of service begins with dedicated scholar-teachers who mentor students and provide opportunities for students to conduct impactful work, exposing them to careers where they can – and do – make a difference.
Ranked No. 1 in NC for Social Mobility, Affordability, & Student Experience by the Wall Street Journal and N.Y. Times. UNCG educates and graduates more first-generation, lower-income, underrepresented groups of students than any other public institution in the state. Simply: our graduates go further.
UNCG students earn their degrees. Our faculty and staff ensure every Spartan has access to resources, opportunities, and world-class hands-on education needed to succeed and compete in a crowded marketplace.
With the help of generous individuals, organizations, and corporate partners, UNCG is nearing its goal of $100 million for student scholarships. UNCG’s fundraising campaign, Light the Way, is committed to opening the door for more talented students to access life-changing public higher education degrees.
Every community has challenges. Greensboro is lucky to have Spartans who are ready, willing, and able to put their knowledge to use – while they’re still in college – to make meaningful change for others. Whether through Campus Greensboro, an organization dedicated to preparing university students for the professional environment, or the Career and Professional Development Office at UNCG, Spartans have the opportunity to not only talk the talk but walk the walk.
UNCG offers more Gilman Scholarships for study abroad than any other school in the state. No matter the student’s financial circumstances, UNCG makes travel dreams come true every year.
