About Us

Chartered in 1789, UNC was the first public university in the United States and the only one to graduate students in the eighteenth century. Today, UNC is a multi-campus university composed of all 16 of North Carolina's public institutions that grant baccalaureate degrees, as well as the NC School of Science and Mathematics, the nation's first public residential high school for gifted students.

The UNC Federal Relations team promotes the University of North Carolina to federal government audiences and other stakeholders, synchronizes UNC strengths and capabilities with federal government priorities, and secures federal research and program funding for UNC campuses. The division is also responsible for the UNC Partnership for National Security and is the lead coordinating entity for executing projects in cooperation with the North Carolina-based military community.
