Nurturing a lifelong connection.
The UNC School of Medicine is steeped in a rich tradition of alumni loyalty.

Educational Excellence Forever Rising

Health care evolves quickly and the way in which we educate future doctors has to keep pace. Tomorrow’s education is more collaborative, innovative and technologically driven. A new, modern medical education building like Roper Hall added to our campus will allow us to better develop, facilitate and expand this new way of instruction. A state-of-the-art facility will also help attract more faculty, students and staff as well as support their determination to thrive and succeed.
“Our core value of providing an outstanding education is timeless, but health care has changed dramatically. [Roper Hall] will allow our innovative faculty to meet that evolving need.”
– Julie Byerley, MD, MPH, Interim Dean, UNC Adams School of Dentistry
