College provides the experience that bridges high school and the real world. Opportunities for team building, leadership, experiential learning, undergraduate research, cultural immersions and internships are essential to students today.
The best and brightest prospects expect to find a rich student experience. To stay competitive with other urban research universities, UNC Charlotte must offer a modern mix of resources. And it must push students to develop socially, physically and intellectually.
The addition of an intercollegiate football team has involved current students and brought alumni back to campus. UNC Charlotte will next focus on enhancing athletic teams and the student-athlete experience, funding additional women’s sports, launching a marching band, and creating a scholarship endowment. These are key to creating an environment for personal development and emotional attachment to the university.
