UNC Charlotte’s remarkable transformation from a night school serving WWII veterans to a 28,000-student urban research university is one of the great success stories of American higher education. Campus leaders - from Bonnie Cone, Dean Colvard, E. K. Fretwell and Jim Woodward to Phil Dubois - have partnered with community leaders across the greater Charlotte region to create a public university that provides invaluable access to tens of thousands of students each year and helps support one of the most dynamic economies in the country.

EXPONENTIAL: The Campaign for UNC Charlotte celebrates a dramatic trajectory of growth - a trajectory made all the more exciting as our 120,000 alumni assume leadership roles in corporate, governmental and civic organizations across the state and the region. More than simply increasing student scholarships, improving the student experience, recruiting skilled faculty and supporting key programs this campaign offers all of us - alumni, leaders of business and the university community - the chance to shape a future that is even more exciting than our past.
