In addition, programs in our School of Education have earned accreditation from the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Education Programs (CACREP), and UNCP's School of Business was awarded accreditation by the Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), a status achieved by only 5 percent of business schools world-wide. These achievements recognize our commitment to challenging students to grow socially and academically and to be engaged, responsible members of community.

We have an extraordinary history. Founded in 1887 by American Indians, this school was the first state-supported college for American Indians in the nation. It is a remarkable story of a people's passion for learning and their belief that education is the foundation for a better life. From the beginning, the university's purpose was to transform lives through education. We continue pursuing that mission every day.
