What I’ll remember most from UNC Greensboro is their success at tackling one of the core missions of modern higher education — welcoming low-income, first-generation college students and helping them find a path to graduation. Forty-four percent of UNCG students are eligible for Pell Grants, and those students have a six-year graduation rate that is just a few points shy of the university’s overall average. The ability to serve students who come from more challenging backgrounds is crucial at a time when our state’s population is changing and our economic needs are evolving. Long-range prosperity means educating more North Carolinians, especially those who have historically faced too many obstacles to higher education.
