Athletics: A catalyst for leadership

The impact of Carolina athletics is undeniable. Our distinctive blue-hued uniforms adorned with that iconic argyle are often the first things that come to mind when people think about the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill-but there's so much more. Teamwork is essential to the Carolina experience, and UNC Athletics supports educational and athletic opportunities across 28 sports to produce both great athletes and amazing people who compete at the highest level in every endeavor.
