Annual Report 2020-2021

While the 2020-2021 academic year was unprecedented in many ways, UNC Charlotte continued its positive momentum to fearlessly shape what’s next and positively impact communities in the Charlotte region, North Carolina and across the globe. And we are just getting started.

Our recently approved Strategic Plan framework is charting the course for our next ten years. Together, we will focus on transforming students’ lives through educational opportunities and excellence; powering the future through inquiry, research and creative discovery; driving progress for North Carolina and beyond; and living our guiding commitments by leading in equity and engagement.

In parallel and complement to this work is a cohesive brand story that is driven by a bold vision for tomorrow that tells the world who we are, what we stand for and where our limitless potential will take us.

On September 23, 2021, we will celebrate our first remarkable 75 years. And there is no doubt we are poised and prepared to fearlessly shape what’s next — positively impacting people, communities and our world for the next 75 years and more to come.

Letter from Chancellor Sharon L. Gaber

“It is because of you that we didn’t just make it through the past year, we excelled — hitting milestones and achieving success at every turn. I know Niner Nation’s future is bright because of the people who support and are part of this community. I can’t wait to see what’s next.”
