"The General Assembly shall provide that the benefits of The University of North Carolina and other public institutions of higher education, as far as practicable, be extended to the people of the State free of expense."

Article IX, Section 9, North Carolina State Constitution

Higher Education Works advocates for public investment in The University of North Carolina and Community College systems by building support among citizens and engaging leaders. Our State’s systems of public higher education must continue to distinguish North Carolina from other states.
