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. July brings eager elementary, middle and high school students to campus, years before their college careers. UNC Greensboro summer camps, centering on technology, personal development and creative expression, occur in nearly every academic unit – from the nationally recognized music camp in the CVPA’s School of Music, to the acclaimed Learning Factory  summer camp in the School of Education’s SELF Design Studio. Many of these camps were established by university friends and faculty members, but the memories these students make today are possible thanks to the generosity of loyal donors. Students create robots, perform their first plays and develop critical interpersonal skills because kind-hearted benefactors hope they will grow by leaps and bounds during these formative weeks.
