Students are always engaged at UNCP. With the warm and welcoming experience that can only come in the tightly knit community of UNC Pembroke, we empower our students to live a vibrant life that extends beyond the classroom. We strive to give students new ways to experience new cultures, ideas and passions that make them more well-rounded as people. UNCP students can discover the things they truly love in life, all while growing as a person.
