The Faces of the Arts on Campus

At the heart of the arts at Carolina are people — students, faculty, staff, artists. We are committed to supporting these members of our community through their lifetime on campus, from recruitment to retirement.

Arts Everywhere

    To compete for the most promising students and accomplished faculty, we need funds to support scholarships, fellowships and endowed positions. To bring thought-leaders to campus, we need funds to host visiting artists and commission new works. With your support, we will shape a community that values nuance and drives discovery.
