UNC Asheville is the only designated liberal arts institution in the 16-campus University of North Carolina system. We provide our students with a personalized education and encourage many activities to promote a campuswide sense of community. Small classes, a low student-faculty ratio, strong academics, valuable service-learning activities, and a diversity of exciting and meaningful educational opportunities on and off campus are hallmarks of the UNC Asheville experience.
We are proud of our tradition of excellence in the liberal arts and our commitment to serving the people of North Carolina. At UNC Asheville we are building new and stronger community partnerships that enrich the quality of life in the region. Our goal is to be the premier public liberal arts university in the country and the first truly intergenerational campus in America, serving the education needs of people of all ages—preschoolers through senior citizens.
