Fifty-two years ago, UNC Charlotte--previously Charlotte College--became the fourth campus of the University of North Carolina by act of the General Assembly. In that first year, we awarded 85 degrees in a dozen baccalaureate degree programs. Since then, we have awarded more than 138,000 degrees and now do so in 77 bachelor’s, 63 master’s, and 23 doctoral programs. That’s 138,000 lives changed for the better, with the support of dedicated faculty and staff working in an institution that has to be considered one of the great success stories of American higher education.
