Sun and Fun-ding

The numbers have been confirmed. During a sweltering July, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte’s College of Computing and Informatics (CCI) generated 58% of university’s total research funding for the month. The sum of grants earned by CCI totaled $2.7 million.
CCI’s status as an innovative global research university is one of many reasons it is the fastest-growing college in the UNC System.

Congratulations to all of the grant recipients – and the entire CCI community.
