The University of North Carolina system announced Wednesday it is launching a new logo and identity for the system and two of its newest initiatives.
In addition to these changes, UNC General Administration – which houses the offices of the president and senior administrative staff of the university system – will be renamed the University of North Carolina System Office to better represent its role.
According to a press release, the new logo uses 17 lines to create the state silhouette and draws on the colors and images of the state flag. Inside the logo are the letters N and C separated by a star.
“With this new look and unified message, the UNC system will honor the successes of our students, faculty, and alumni and expand educational access for every North Carolinian,” the press release said.
The two newest initiatives are NC Promise and UNC Lab Schools.
