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. What began as the vision of theatre professors Jim Wren and John Gulley is now a major event in the School of Theatre. During The UNCG Theatre Industry Showcase, rising seniors and graduate students, under the direction of showcase producer Assistant Professor Michael Flannery, travel to the Big Apple for a once-in-a-lifetime performance and networking opportunity. Donor support—through scholarships and program funding in the CVPA and School of Theatre—allows selected seniors and MFA students to attend this nearly 20-year-old event and connect with top names in the industry, as well as UNCG alumni who have “made it.” It is an invaluable experience that bridges academy and stage, granting students a glimpse at their future as they prepare to enter the spotlight.
