Education Outcomes

After the study revealed that there were no Ph.D granting universities in the Charlotte region, UNC Charlotte set a goal of building the intellectual capital of the region by becoming a Doctoral / Research University. Their new mission statement:

  “UNC Charlotte is the only Doctoral/Research University – Intensive in the Charlotte region, fully engaged in the discovery, dissemination, synthesis, and application of knowledge…UNC Charlotte has a special responsibility to build the intellectual capital of this area. As such it serves the research and doctoral education needs of the greater Charlotte metropolitan region.”  

The first capital campaign to fund the building of a Doctoral and research program exceeded its goal by $10 million.
