Mission Statement

The Dubois Center at UNC Charlotte Center City functions as a gateway between the city of Charlotte and the University and, as such, embodies UNC Charlotte’s urban identity in the heart of the greater Charlotte region. 

Home to the School of Professional Studies, the building bustles with working professionals and adult learners who are able to conveniently access continuing education programs ranging from 1-day workshops, to short-format certificates and boot camps, to degrees.

In addition to professional programming, The Dubois Center facilitates academic programs having an urban awareness and context, while providing vital learning opportunities for employees and residents of the urban center. 

Architecturally, it reflects its mission as a premier institution of higher education; its context in this vibrant, rapidly urbanizing area; and its commitment to environmental sustainability.

Operationally, it incorporates the attributes we wish to instill in the entire University: excellence in programming, responsiveness to stakeholders, entrepreneurship, interdisciplinary productivity, inclusiveness, flexibility, and efficiency.
