  • “I’ve always wanted to teach because I enjoy helping people, especially kids” said Taylor Dunham. “I like helping them look past the challenges they face and to realize they can do anything they set their minds to.”

  • Graduation season is upon us. Across the state, all eyes are on the 50,000-plus students getting ready to leave the University with tassels turned to the left and diplomas in hand. But as the academic year winds down, another group is quietly returning to the fold: this year’s cohort of Fulbright Scholars, most of whom are wrapping up projects and preparing to come home.

  • Nine Nation Unites

    Message from UNC Charlotte Chancellor Phil Dubois

    To the Students, Employees, Alumni, Families, and Supporters of UNC Charlotte:

    Words cannot adequately express the heartbreak we feel over Tuesday’s tragic events, nor can they describe the selfless, overwhelming support you have provided. Even in the midst of UNC Charlotte’s darkest day, our greatest strength--our ability to unify with one heart and a common purpose--shines clearly through.

  • The Cadence of the Community

    Festivals Highlight the Diversity of Arts Engagement Across North Carolina

    On April evenings in Durham, those lucky enough to have a ticket will catch some magical moments at the Durham Arts Council. A chanteuse’s sultry voice might float through the dusk, pleading to a distant lover. A trumpet’s blare might liven up the otherwise sleepy night. Vibrant Latin rhythms might transform a lackadaisical shuffle into a scorching dance.

    Jazz. It brings the city to life in more ways than one.

  • Symposium Highlights Innovative Uses of Teaching Technologies

    Professors can have a difficult time planning to co-teach a course with a colleague in another department: orchestrating schedules, arranging funding, coordinating lecture slots, developing complementary lesson plans. Imagine the audacity of Dr. Barbara Howard’s vision to team teach with a faculty member in another country. Howard wanted to remain on campus at Appalachian State University, while Dr. Natalia Ilyashenko would stay planted at her home institution … Novgorod State University in Russia.

  • NCCU Schweitzer Fellows Help Students Talk Their Way to Well-Being

    Believe it or not, sentence structure has an impact on health and well-being. Just ask Brandi Montgomery and Crystal Cox, two of North Carolina’s 2018-19 Schweitzer Fellows.

  • Alternative Spring Breaks Give Students a Chance to Give Back

    Contrary to what routinely plays out across TV and cinema screens, not every college student’s idea of a spring break is to baste in SPF 30 under the scorching Florida sun.

    Every year, students across the UNC System prove that fun and hard work aren’t mutually exclusive pursuits. Rather than orchestrating the mid-semester break as a getaway blowout, these students use their time off to give something back in the form of service.

  • Plotting the Course

    Data Dashboards Chart Progress Towards 2022
