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. Ever since our first president, Charles Duncan McIver, opened our doors, UNC Greensboro has been an institution of service. Our 125-year motto “Service” has been embraced by generations, with student after student and class after class devoting time and energy to communities down the street, throughout the region and across the state. As the new academic year opens and the first page of our next chapter begins, we remember that service is an integral part of our university’s identity, and for many, a way of life. From veterans to teachers to coaches, our alumni make a remarkable impact through authentic devotion to service.
