Each gift makes a difference



In his 2017 “State of the Campus” address, Chancellor Franklin D. Gilliam Jr. said UNCG is poised to enter an “era of Giant Steps,” anchored through transformation—student transformation, knowledge transformation and regional transformation. A university that recognizes its role in the shared place and fate of the city, state and nation, UNCG is ready to step boldly into the public spotlight as a top school of choice in the Southeast.

The ongoing generosity of alumni, corporations, foundations and friends worldwide creates access to excellence and opportunity for students, faculty, staff and the greater community. With 10 departments and more than 3000 students, the School of Health and Human Sciences equips future health professionals and institutions with the knowledge and skills to make our world better, safer and healthier. Through teaching, scholarship and service, faculty and staff empower undergraduate and graduate students to engage in groundbreaking research and create viable partnerships for the betterment of society. Financial support enables students to dedicate themselves to the coursework, research, volunteerism and internships necessary for rewarding careers serving individuals, families and communities.
