You Are Welcome Here!

Welcome to UNCP!


Encouraging intercultural appreciation and inclusion is part of the foundation of the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, and we have been rated by U.S. News as one of the most diverse campuses in the nation.

"We cultivate an international perspective, rooted in our service to and appreciation of our multi-ethnic regional society, which prepares citizens for engagement in global society. Students are encouraged to participate in activities that develop their intellectual curiosity and mold them into responsible stewards of the world."
Excerpt from the UNCP Mission Statement

Our international students and scholars are valued on our campus, and we would like to welcome you to our community.

  • 93 sponsored international students and scholars 
  • Representing 18 countries
  • Studying in more than 14 majors
  • Diverse Faculty and Staff from all around the world

(Numbers from Spring 2020)

We focus on ensuring that each student at UNCP is respected and given opportunities to contribute to our campus community.

With a student to faculty ratio of 18 to 1, your professors will know who you are. 

International students are also encouraged to become involved in clubs, organizations, and activities across campus, including in those offered by Global Engagement to specifically serve our international population.

We are glad to welcome you to our campus and our community!
