The UNCP 1887 Society Crest




Reflecting UNCP's diverse community and commitment to creating an inclusive experience, seven students will be honored each year as members of the 1887 Society. Selected each fall through a process that provides applicants the opportunity to share how their personal journey at UNCP demonstrates service, learning, engagement, leadership, integrity, school spirit, and courage, the 1887 Society show a commitment to the values of the University, and service to the local community. UNCP has been honoring student leaders and their legacy at homecoming since 1954. Students inducted into the 1887 Society will receive a medallion to represent their membership among other special benefits.
