The College of Arts and Sciences
and the Campaign for Carolina

More than 37,000 alumni and generous friends of the College of Arts and Sciences committed $764 million for the College’s 17,000 undergraduate students, some 2,300 graduate students, world-renowned faculty and researchers, and the 43 academic departments and curricula that they call home. We invite you to explore the stories behind the numbers.

Each Triple-I course brings together three outstanding professors from different departments across the university so that students can study a common theme from several perspectives. Triple-I is part of the First Year Foundations requirement of the new IDEAs in Action curriculum. (photo by Donn Young)

Supporting the New Undergraduate General Education Curriculum

Thanks to a recent gift from donors Justin ’94 and Emily Haynie ’96, whose son is a current Tar Heel, the College is able to implement this more structured first-year experience.

French Fellow Frances Duffy Ph.D. ’20, who earned her doctorate in public policy, received graduate support that enabled her to focus on her dissertation research and teaching. Duffy is currently a senior national security analyst at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory.

$25 Million Gift to be Transformative for Graduate Students

A $25 million bequest to the College of Arts and Sciences from an anonymous donor ensures a bright future for graduate students. This transformative commitment, when realized, will support more than 200 graduate students annually.
