Funding Priority

Translating Ideas Into Reality

As a renowned global public research university, we aspire to lead the world in research, academic scholarship and creative endeavor. Our faculty and students must be equipped with the resources they need to be successful. Building the new UNC Institute for Convergent Science will provide the extraordinary facilities necessary to bring together scientists from across the University who will break through the boundaries of human knowledge to solve real-world problems in areas such as water scarcity, brain disease and new energy resources. Renovating Hill Hall is providing our music department with new space for teaching, learning and performing.
