Each gift makes a difference



“From metaphors to action” – so said Chancellor Gilliam in his message that opened the 2019-20 academic year. The groundwork has been laid: With new degree programs, student success initiatives, and dedicated leadership, UNC Greensboro stands ready to deliver on its promises. Yet as we seize this moment to make regional and national impact, we cannot forget thousands of individuals who make UNCG’s remarkable model of combined excellence, opportunity, and impact possible.

The ongoing generosity of alumni, corporations, foundations, and friends creates motivation for excellence and momentum for change on campus, in our city, and across our state. For decades UNCG was North Carolina’s “best kept secret” – a gem of a university that you loved once you learned about it. Now UNCG is taking its well-deserved place as an institution of renown. As UNCG enters the spotlight, students excitedly share how they found their way here and the exciting things they have discovered on campus: new dreams and lifelong friendships, experiences earned with faculty, and opportunities created through the generosity of donors.
