UNC GREENSBORO CREATES REMARKABLE REAL-WORLD IMPACT, EVERY DAY.
She’s not your average Homecoming Queen
Vickie Whitt is a breast cancer survivor, a mother, and a grandmother. And at the age of 56, she was crowned UNCG Homecoming Royalty. After beating cancer in 2015, Vickie decided to go back to school. The communication studies major took full advantage of the college experience – she got involved in student groups, worked on campus, and cheered on Spartan sports teams. Along the way, she shared her story, fought for a cure, and inspired others – and she has the crown to prove it.
Find Your Way Here
You see it every day. In the hard work, inventive ideas and powerful collaborations that define our communities. In schools, hospitals and businesses. The everyday and extraordinary achievements that add up to the remarkable impact of UNC Greensboro.
It is true today as it has been for over 125 years: UNC Greensboro is relentlessly focused on helping each student unleash their potential and make a meaningful impact with their lives, in our community and around the world, every day.
Dean John Z. Kiss Congratulates the Class of 2020
Dean John Z. Kiss extends his congratulations to the 2020 graduates of UNCG’s largest college/school. The graduates represent a diverse array of disciplines, from languages to biology to interior architecture. They are the next psychologists, writers, politicians, scientists, historians, interpreters – the list goes on. “You are now armed with a liberal arts education, meaning you’ve got the flexible skills and multidisciplinary perspective needed to navigate a world full of challenges,” Kiss says.

The College of Arts & Sciences
With more than 25 departments and programs, the College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) is the largest and most diverse academic unit at UNCG. Our mission is to promote discovery and learning by students and faculty in the sciences, humanities, arts, social sciences and mathematics.
The College of Arts & Sciences is well regarded for providing countless opportunities for undergraduate students to participate in research labs and projects, thereby inspiring a new generation of thought leaders. Whether they’re fighting diseases, publishing thought-provoking books, or uncovering historical artifacts, our faculty and students contribute an immense amount of expertise not just locally, but globally as well. Last academic year, CAS secured $9.5 million in external grant funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the Mellon Foundation and other large institutions.
A liberal arts education model is at the heart of the College of Arts & Sciences. This means that all students, regardless of major, receive broad knowledge of the wider world in addition to in-depth study in a specific area of interest. This diversity of study empowers students to deal with complexity, diversity, and change.
