A Global MindsetWe believe that to be a preeminent university, global thinking must be integrated into all we do. Global opportunities fuel our students’ lives, our faculty’s research and our innovative spirit. A global education can no longer simply be an option – it must be integral to every student’s experience. We want to offer a Global Guarantee – a guarantee that every Carolina student will graduate with the skills and experience needed to be engaged global citizens.
The Institute for Convergent ScienceSuccessful universities, both public and private, are engines for innovation — places where basic science meets technology to solve problems for the public good. The UNC Institute for Convergent Science will help Carolina lead in our service to the State and Nation by bringing together innovators from the worlds of science, engineering, art, humanities, design, and business.
Arts EverywhereArts Everywhere is rooted in the fundamental belief that the arts are for everyone. They prompt us to see the world with new eyes, to solve problems in non-linear ways, ask difficult questions, access creativity and think unconventionally. With every arts-related department and unit participating, Arts Everywhere aims to embed creative expression, live arts experiences and arts learning into students’ Carolina education.
