This year marks the 75th anniversary of UNC Charlotte’s founding. In that short time, we have grown from a single center serving 278 students through evening classes to North Carolina’s urban research university with more than 30,000 students.
Our 75th year is bringing triumph and transformation, and you can read about some of our more recent accolades below.
Charlotte is a university on the move, fearlessly shaping what’s next for our city, our state and our world. And we are just getting started.
National Recognition for Innovation and Social Mobility
U.S. News & World Report has recognized Charlotte as one of the nation’s most innovative universities and a leader in social mobility.
Both illustrate our commitment to student success, ensuring our students have access to a high-quality and affordable education. We prepare our students to create a life of opportunity and impact for themselves, their families and their communities.
Model Response to the Pandemic
Through the University’s collective efforts, we were able to deliver the highest quality education to our students — whether remotely or in person — while achieving record-breaking enrollment and fundraising goals.
A Transformational Play
Charlotte has accepted an invitation to join the American Athletic Conference (The American).
Membership in The American provides us with an incredible platform to grow our program, while sharing the remarkable stories of our talented student-athletes, our extraordinary institution and our amazing city.
