Mission:  UNC Charlotte is North Carolina's urban research university. It leverages its location in the state's largest city to offer internationally competitive programs of 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. 

Background:  Immediately following World War II, the United States experienced an urgent need for a workforce with the education necessary to meet the demands generated by the war and its technology. UNC Charlotte is one of the universities founded at that time in metropolitan areas throughout the United States to meet that need. While it began offering just evening classes taught in the facilities of Charlotte Central High School, the storied institution has grown into the region's preeminent research university on a beautiful, vibrant 1,000-acre campus designed to meet the needs of a new era.
