      Description

      The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is a public university in Greensboro, North Carolina. It was chartered in 1891 as the State Normal and Industrial School, the first state-supported institute of higher education for women in North Carolina, and opened October 5, 1892, providing instruction in business, domestic science, and teaching. Its name was changed in 1896 to State Normal and Industrial College, and again in 1919 to North Carolina College for Women. In 1922 the college awarded its first master's degrees. In 1932, as the Woman's College of the University of North Carolina, it became one of the three charter institutions of the Consolidated University of North Carolina (since 1972 called the University of North Carolina System). With the advent of coeducation in 1963, WCUNC was renamed the University of North Carolina at Greensboro; it awarded its first doctorates the same year.

      UNCG offers over 100 undergraduate, 59 masters, and 18 doctoral programs. As of fall 2004, it had 889 FTE faculty members and an enrollment of 14,644 resident students (11,441 undergraduate and 3,203 graduate). Its sports teams are called the "Spartans".
