Welcome to Spartan Stories!

Welcome to Spartan Stories! Here, staff of the University Archives at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro will share tales from the long history of our institution. From its founding in 1891 as a publicly-funded school for women's higher education to its current standing as a learner-centered public research university, UNCG has a unique history filled with interesting stories. On this blog, we look to share these stories with students, faculty, staff, alumni, and others who wish to learn more about how our university became - and, in many ways, has always been - a source of innovation and leadership within North Carolina and beyond.
