Each gift makes a difference

In his Welcome remarks for the 2018-19 academic year, Chancellor Franklin D. Gilliam, Jr. observed that 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. Currently, North Carolina faces an educational crisis. Record low numbers of teachers entering the work force and plummeting retention rates – particularly among mathematics and sciences – threaten public education. Yet many of our donors are turning the tide through thoughtful scholarships and programing funds. Knowing how foundational mathematics and science are in our increasingly innovative and technology-driven world, alumni and friends dedicate significant resources to attracting, training, and retaining future teachers. And with more than 75 percent of UNCG alumni remaining in North Carolina after graduation, these donors make an incredible, everyday impact every year.
