The Office of the President
President Pamela Davies, Ph.D.
For more than a century, Queens has been transforming students' lives and fostering personal and professional success. The University's strong foundation features a Presbyterian heritage, award-winning faculty, innovative curriculum, and an assortment of creative programs.
Since our founding in 1857, we have grown from an all-women's college into a master's level university. The Queens of today is a thriving co-educational institution, boasting five N.C. Professors of the Year, 18 NCAA Division II men's and women's sports teams (including reigning NCAA Division II Men's and Women's Swimming Team National Champions), and exemplary international study and internship programs that have been named among the best in the country.
With the help of many generous alumni and friends, we have garnered significant funding to support our scholarship program and our facilities plan. Recent gifts have bolstered scholarship offerings for high-achieving students and will impact the Queens student experience for years to come. Facility expansion and renovation has also been a focus, and the Queens community has benefitted greatly from new spaces such as the Levine Center for Wellness and Recreation, the Hall Brown Terrace, the Grigg Outdoor Classroom, and the Tarwater and Waters Courtyards. A $6 million renovation of Knight-Crane Hall, which houses the Knight School of Communication and several other campus programs, was also recently completed. Plans for a new tennis center and an expansion of iconic Belk Chapel are also in place. These improvements are helping to ensure the momentum from our first 150 years continues for many generations to come. Our highest priority at Queens is maintaining our tradition of excellence in education and providing transformational experiences that ensure our students' success.
Enjoy your time learning more about Queens online, but do consider visiting our beautiful campus in person. I believe that you will find that Queens has much to offer and is committed to supporting our students and community as it has since its founding. I hope to see you on campus sometime soon.
