Why UNC Pembroke?

UNC Pembroke students embody the spirit of success and we want the same for you. Take a look at some of the many ways in which UNC Pembroke can help empower you to live a truly vibrant and rewarding life, both in the classroom and beyond.

Become an Expert Learner at UNC Pembroke

Our strong emphasis on the liberal arts – the arts, humanities, natural, and social sciences – will help you become an expert at learning. When life throws a problem at you with no clear-cut solution, you’ll have the edge you need to be successful.

Shine at UNC Pembroke

With countless opportunities to learn, explore and strengthen the skills you care about most, as well as the benefits that come from small class sizes, excellent faculty and a tightly-knit community that cares, UNC Pembroke students get a unique opportunity to make a name for themselves here.

An All-Access Pass to Amazing Faculty

Our faculty and staff are some of the best you’ll find anywhere. With nearly 60 percent of our instructors holding at least a Ph.D., they’re an incredibly knowledgeable group of teaching professionals and are truly willing go the extra mile to make sure their students are successful. Nearly half of our classes have fewer than 20 students. Classes aren’t held in massive auditoriums, allowing students to find the personal attention they need to truly build on and master the concepts key to their success.

A Community That Cares

UNC Pembroke calls the small town of Pembroke, N.C., home. It’s a welcoming community that cares about you and ultimately wants to help you meet your goals in life. That sentiment is echoed by our own students, faculty and an administration that wakes up every morning striving to achieve success. You’ll have all the support you need to thrive at UNC Pembroke.

A Robust Campus Experience

UNC Pembroke has a vibrant and diverse campus, and it truly shows in the opportunities available to our students. We have more than 80 student organizations and a student body made up of a wide range of cultures and ethnicities. Add those traits to our strong performing arts community and competitive NCAA Division II Athletics programs, and UNC Pembroke students end up with robust campus experience that is unique to Pembroke. Where else can you play kickball with faculty and staff or cheer on the basketball team while sitting next to the chancellor?
