Each gift makes a difference



UNC Greensboro faces a critical moment in its history. At its own inflection point – a turning point after which we can expect a dramatic change – our University is on the verge of becoming a national model for how a university can blend opportunity, excellence, and impact to advance student success and transform communities. Yet it is only through effort, through everyone pulling together in the same direction, that UNC Greensboro’s remarkable, everyday impact will spread.

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. UNCG has always been invested in its local economy and business trends. Commercial and business courses were offered to the first undergraduate class in 1892, but it wasn’t until 1969 that the Bryan School of Business and Economics was officially established. For the past 50 years, the Bryan School has stood as a leader in business education, combining theory with global opportunities and hands-on experiences to produce exceptional graduates. Those 26,000 alumni have made a tremendous impact on their organizations and communities – and the Bryan School promises to do much more in their second half-century.
