Founded in 1887, the University of North Carolina at Pembroke (UNCP) serves 8,262 students from diverse backgrounds and offers 41 undergraduate programs and 18 graduate programs. Located in the southeastern North Carolina town of Pembroke, UNCP has a rich American Indian history and is one of the safest campuses in the University of North Carolina System. As a regional university, UNCP is known for small classes, close interaction with faculty, community involvement and diversity. Its mission is to change lives through education, guided by the values of collaboration, communication, accountability, integrity, innovation, and service. The 281-acre residential campus has grown significantly over the last decade, with additions that include the state-of-the-art Weinstein Health Sciences Building, well-appointed residence halls, and the downtown entrepreneurship center. The university’s diversity extends beyond race and ethnicity to include non-traditional students, first-generation students and military-affiliated students. UNCP believes learning is best when it is personal. This means university faculty and staff are prepared to meet each student where they are with the tools needed for success.
