Funding Priority

Leveraging Innovation for Experiential Education

To ensure Carolina’s competitiveness in an evolving global environment, the college must invest in strategic interdisciplinary priorities for the 21st century. From renowned research centers in which innovation thrives to dynamic new facilities like our BeAM makerspaces, we are bringing our college community together to think, communicate, collaborate and create. Support of signature programs — through Convergent Science, the Carolina Center for Jewish Studies, the Shuford Program in Entrepreneurship, the Center for the Study of the American South and PlayMakers Repertory Company — plays a key role in helping us take on the world’s greatest challenges.
