Signature Initiatives

    Carolina’s Global Guarantee

    There has never been more opportunity — or more need — to work across cultures to find solutions to global problems. Carolina aims to ensure that all students — even those who never travel abroad while at UNC — receive a substantive combination of knowledge, experiences and skills to be engaged and dynamic global citizens. The University further aims to infuse a global dimension throughout its teaching, research and service activities, to deepen and broaden UNC’s global reach, and to enhance its global visibility. Already hailed as one of the country’s leading universities for global enrichment, Carolina aspires to provide the most diverse and innovative global learning opportunities anywhere.
