Mission Statement

UNC Charlotte Center City functions as a gateway to the entire University of North Carolina at Charlotte and as such embodies UNC Charlotte’s urban identity in the heart of the greater Charlotte region. Architecturally, it reflects its mission as a premier institution of higher education; its context in this vibrant, rapidly urbanizing area; and its commitment to environmental sustainability.

Academically, UNC Charlotte Center City facilitates programs having an urban awareness and context, while providing vital learning opportunities for employees and residents of the urban center. Operationally, it incorporates the attributes we wish to instill in the entire university: excellence in programming, responsiveness to stakeholders, entrepreneurship, interdisciplinary productivity, inclusively, flexibility, and efficiency.
