Nelson SchwabMESSAGE FROM THE BOARD CHAIR

Welcome. Those of us who support the Institute for the Arts and Humanities believe that the greatest impact on the “rising generation” extolled in the University of North Carolina 1789 charter is through investment in our faculty. Carolina remains a top-5 public university because of our greatest asset: the scholars and artists who teach every Carolina student in their first two years of undergraduate work. All of us are Carolina alumni who had a favorite professor who shaped who we are today. We are fortunate to be able to give back in a meaningful way. We invite you to explore the ways in which the Institute supports UNC faculty.

— Nelson Schwab III (’67)
