Reimagining the arts and sciences for the public good

The College of Arts & Sciences is creating life-changing possibilities for students and faculty through the Campaign for Carolina. To date, more than 22,296 alumni and friends have committed $686 million for the College’s 19,000 students, world-renowned faculty and researchers, and the 44 academic departments and curricula that they call home. Every gift to the College counts towards its $750 million goal in the campaign and towards the broader University-wide goal of $4.25 billion.

Dean Terry Rhodes’ signature initiatives in the Campaign for Carolina illustrate the College’s commitment to reimagining the arts and sciences for the public good—for all kind.
