This is Queens
Blazing trails since 1857.
That’s the year we were first founded as a higher education institution for women. Before we were Queens University of Charlotte, we were the Charlotte Female Institute. As you’ll notice, a lot has changed since then. We’re co-ed. We have flexible master’s programs (in-person and online). We moved (about 3 miles from our original location) to the lovely neighborhood of Myers Park. Our community has grown bigger and bolder with each new development.
Royals are rising to every occasion.
Despite all that’s changed, one thing has stayed the same—Royals’ ability to meet the needs of the moment. Whenever and however we are called upon, we live by our motto. An ethos that inspires us not to be served, but to serve. Wherever a student is looking for an answer, we see a need to close the digital divide in our community or bring better healthcare to the Carolinas—Royals Rise.
Hint: it’s our students.
Just like our motto declares, we’re on a mission to serve our community. There’s no better way to contribute than to have a hand in cultivating the next generation of leaders in every industry.
To prepare graduates for a successful future, we focus on infusing real-world experiences like civic engagement and study abroad into their education. It’s easy to do with Charlotte—a city on the rise—as our backdrop. As much experience as our students get from the city, they’ll give back to it and its job market tenfold.
Our mission, vision, values are how we talk about the big things that matter the most to us here.
It should come as no surprise they all have to do with you.
