UNC Charlotte is North Carolina's urban research institution. Our campus is located in the piedmont of North Carolina, just two hours from the mountains and three hours from the Atlantic Ocean. A large public university with a small college feel, more than 25,000 students consider UNC Charlotte’s 1,000-acre campus their home away from home.
In collaboration with many other colleges and universities in the region, national nonpartisan, nonprofit organizations and the Charlotte in 2012 Host Committee, UNC Charlotte created the 49er Democracy Experience. The Experience brings together expert faculty, civic-minded students and community partners to develop educational programming to enhance the public understanding of and participation in our nation’s democratic process.
UNC Charlotte invites the entire Charlotte community to participate in the 49er Democracy Experience.
