School of Nursing Named National Center of Excellence

The National League of Nurses has selected the UNC Charlotte School of Nursing as a 2016 Center of Excellence in Nursing Education.

The School of Nursing received the designation for creating environments that enhance student learning and professional development. The NLN Center of Excellence (COE) in Nursing Education designation is for schools of nursing and health care organizations that have achieved a level of excellence in a specific area. Through public recognition and distinction, the program acknowledges the outstanding innovations, commitment and sustainability of excellence these organizations convey.

"The School of Nursing (SON) is known in the community for its strong academic programs and for valuing excellence in practice, critical thinking and scholarly inquiry," faculty leaders said. "We pride ourselves on creating strong learning environments and developing instructional programs that are responsive to the changing health care needs of the community."

University Listed in Guide to Green Colleges

UNC Charlotte is listed in the seventh annual edition of Princeton Review’s "green guide," which features the 361 most environmentally responsible colleges in the nation.

The University’s continued excellence as the region’s premiere urban research institution, its commitment to build all future building projects to LEED design standards and the successful implementation of a zero-waste initiative factored into this designation.

Tyler Sytsma, the University’s sustainability coordinator, stated, "Many of our students come to college wanting to make a positive impact in the world, and it is our responsibility as a University to give them the tools and infrastructure they need to make that impact."
