The mission of the Center for Global Initiatives is to expand global opportunities at UNC through collaborative programs + projects and competitive awards + fellowships that connect people across borders and disciplines.
We pursue this goal through a wide range of initiatives such as directing UNC’s Fulbright Program, funding faculty to develop new global courses, empowering students to conduct ambitious research and internships abroad, and connecting North Carolina K-12 classrooms with UNC’s global resources.

By forging alliances with individuals and organisations ranging from urban slumdwellers to global institutions, we help strengthen marginalised people’s voices in decision making and ensure that national and international policy better reflects the agendas of poorer communities and countries. Some of our partners are people working in other nongovernment organisations, governments, academia, indigenous people’s groups, global institutes and multilateral agencies such as the UN. Others are alliances that we either steer or work very closely with, often at the grassroots level in developing countries.
