Each gift makes a difference



“From metaphors to action” – so said Chancellor Gilliam in his message that opened the 2019-20 academic year. The groundwork has been laid: With new degree programs, student success initiatives, and dedicated leadership, UNC Greensboro stands ready to deliver on its promises. Yet as we seize this moment to make regional and national impact, we cannot forget thousands of individuals who make UNCG’s remarkable model of combined excellence, opportunity, and impact possible.

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. Many students are entering – or returning to –  college later in life. Their backgrounds, family histories, and personal circumstances are key components to our institutional identity. While we continue to promote accomplishments such as our INSIGHT Into Diversity Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award and our No. 1 statewide rank in social mobility, we must also remember to pay tribute to the students these achievements represent.
