Happy Veteran’s Day! 

The Charlotte Center of the University of North Carolina opened its doors in September 1946 and grew to become Charlotte College and eventually the fourth campus of the University of North Carolina in 1965. Our origins are rooted in the desire of the state of North Carolina to provide educational access to veterans returning from World War II. Veterans continue to be a part of our campus community and we thank them for their service.
