The University, City and Region

The University

Kenan-Flagler School of Business. Established in 1919 as the Department of Commerce of UNC Chapel Hill's College of Arts, the School was renamed the Kenan-Flagler Business School in 1991 to honour two prominent American business families and benefactors of the School: philanthropist Mary Lily Kenan-Flagler and her husband, Henry Morrison Flagler.

The City of Chapel Hill and Region

Chapel Hill is a small college town, but UNC has made it a magnet for interesting people and activities. Although Chapel Hill itself is small, it makes up one of the corners of the Research Triangle. The Research Triangle is the common name for the research-intensive and cosmopolitan area which has grown up around UNC, Duke University in Durham, and North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina's capital city and the largest city in the Triangle. Cooperation among these universities and the high concentration of talented researchers in the Triangle spawned the Research Triangle Park, a development of research facilities including bases for IBM, GlaxoSmithKline, the Environmental Protection Agency, and many other companies and research organizations. All of these high-tech institutions contribute to the financial and intellectual prosperity of this beautiful region of North Carolina, consistently ranked as one of the most desirable places to live in the United States.
