University of North Carolina Asheville


At UNC Asheville, our liberal arts educational approach emphasizes life skills including critical thinking, clear and thoughtful expression, and honest open inquiry. Students undertake concentrated study in one area while simultaneously developing an understanding of the connections among disciplines. We encourage students to clarify, develop and live their own values while respecting the views and beliefs of others. In addition we cultivate an understanding of the dimensions of human diversity while recognizing the common humanity of all. We believe a quality liberal arts education enables our graduates to be lifelong learners and to lead successful, flourishing lives as leaders and contributors to their communities. Visit www.unca.edu for more information.

Through a values-based discovery process that helps donors articulate what’s important to them in three vital areas—family, finances and philanthropy—we guide individuals, couples and families through the work of cultivating their desired legacies. It’s a process that for our clients results in meaningful gifts and a closer relationship with donors.
