University of North Carolina at Charlotte
UNC Charlotte is North Carolina's urban research university. It leverages its location in the state's largest city to offer internationally competitive research and creative activity, exemplary undergraduate, graduate and professional programs, and a focused set of community engagement initiatives. UNC Charlotte maintains a particular commitment to addressing the cultural, economic, educational, environmental, health and social needs of the greater Charlotte region. Our lush, wooded main campus is peaceful and self-contained, yet still in close proximity to the bustling city and is connected by a light rail line. More than 1,000 full-time faculty comprise the University’s academic departments and student enrollment now exceeds 30,000 students.
I always had a person that could answer my questions and guide me when it came to a difficult scenario. All of my professors at UNC-Charlotte strived to make the road to the career of my dreams as successful as they could.
