About the UNC

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, also known as UNC, is a public university in Chapel Hill in the US state of North Carolina.

Founded in 1789 at the start of George Washington's presidency, the institution began enrolling its first students in 1795, thereby claiming the title of one of the three oldest public universities in the United States. The first institution of higher learning in North Carolina, the school opened its doors to students on February 12, 1795.

The university offers degrees in more than 70 courses through 14 colleges and Colleges of Arts and Sciences. In 1951 North Carolina kicked off the desegregation process when African-American students were admitted under the direction of Dean Robert Burton House.

In 1952, North Carolina opened its first hospital, UNC Health Care, for research and disease treatment and has specialized in cancer research ever since. The institution's students, alumni, and sports teams are collectively known as the Tar Heels.

UNC has achieved notable successes in sports, particularly in men's basketball, where Michael Jordan played, in women's soccer and in women's field hockey.
