Niles SorensenUNC Charlotte is in the midst of an exciting time. Enrollment continues at a record-breaking pace, we established our 22nd doctoral program, and alumni and students alike were thrilled by the 49ers' inaugural football season.

These are truly great times to be a Niner.

The UNC Charlotte Foundation exists to support this great University and does so thanks to the generosity of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends who give generously to a wide variety of programs, scholarships, and unrestricted support. We continue to strive towards those objectives outlined in the strategic plan. This important progress advances North Carolina’s urban research university.

UNC Charlotte is making an increasingly important and valued contribution locally, nationally, and internationally. We are grateful to all those who make this possible.

Go Niners!
