School of Government

Jump To

At the UNC School of Government, our mission centers on public service. Our faculty and staff work tirelessly to deliver on our promise to improve the lives of North Carolinians through practical scholarship.

This work generates real-world impact: last year, we held 257 courses attended by nearly 17,000 registrants and responded to more than 9,084 advising requests from leaders across the state. We work with local governments and organizations on their most pressing challenges, including workforce development, the American Rescue Plan Act, affordable housing, criminal justice, adult protection, and more.

We also prepare the next generation of public service leaders through our nationally ranked Master of Public Administration program. UNC MPA faculty and staff work alongside students online and on-campus who are using their education to better serve their local communities.

On GiveUNC, we celebrate the powerful ripple effect generated by the unwavering support of our alumni, donors, friends, and clients. We hope you will join us in this celebration by making a gift to any scholarship, fund, program, or initiative at the School. No gift is too small! With your help, we can educate leaders across the state, the country, and the world. Thank you for your gift today and for investing in the School of Government.
