Big picture: A message from Chancellor Gilliam

Chancellor Franklin D. Gilliam, Jr.

UNCG has been a remarkable place during these extraordinary times.

In our faculty and staff, I see tireless dedication to our mission – literally thousands of people pulling together to create the best possible academic, social, and cultural experience for our students as they pursue their dreams.

In our alumni, I see passionate support and a willingness to give time, expertise, and treasure where all of these resources are much needed and deeply appreciated. Spartans are coming together to support UNCG and our students in new and meaningful ways.

In our community, I see the power of our shared place and fate and the unique role we play in making Greensboro a vibrant city.

And most of all, I see in our students resilience, persistence, focus, an strength. They have earned our admiration and respect. They have embraced life-saving community standards in ways that have directly contributed to our ability to manage this pandemic as effectively as possible. I am grateful to them, proud of them, and inspired by them.

Better days are ahead. For the present, we face our challenges united by our common purpose as “one great unbroken band,” as our school song says.
