         History of UNCP

• In 1887, the General Assembly of North Carolina
  enacted legislation, creating the Croatan Normal School.
  The school opened with 15 students and one teacher in

• Today UNCP offers bachelors degrees in over 40 areas
  and masters degrees in over 16 areas and conferrers
  more than 700 degrees each year.
• UNCP is expecting approval to offer a PhD in Physical
  Therapy
      Today UNCP is……….
