The University of North Carolina (UNC) system is a public university system in the state of North Carolina, comprising 17 distinct campuses across the state, each with its own unique focus and character. The system was officially established in 1971, though its flagship campus, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, was founded in 1789, making it one of the oldest public universities in the United States. The UNC system serves a wide range of students, offering a variety of programs including undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees across multiple disciplines. Each campus in the system is linked by a shared mission to provide high-quality education and foster academic excellence. The system includes research-intensive universities, historically black colleges and universities, and institutions specializing in arts and technology. The governance of the system is overseen by the UNC Board of Governors, which sets policy and administrative procedures for all campuses.
