Special Collections and University Archives

The Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collections and University Archives is excited to announce the launching of a new, rotating exhibit in the first floor reading room of Jackson Library titled “Changing Times: A History of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro.” The exhibit will trace the development of the school from its founding in 1891 up to the present day and will feature artifacts, documents, and photographs from the University Archives.

McIver, the school’s first president and founder; and on the cost of attendance in 1893.
