CCI Excited by New Hires

As the fastest-growing College in the University of North Carolina System, UNC Charlotte's College of Computing and Informatics (CCI) continues to attract and hire top talent. CCI is excited to announce the addition of nearly 40 distinguished faculty, staff and administrative professionals in just the past year. Beyond the appeal of working at one of the nation's most-influential urban research universities, candidates are drawn to CCI's energy and a culture being molded by its dean, Dr. Fatma Mili, herself a relative newcomer to UNC Charlotte.

Dean Mili offers a warm welcome to all, saying, "We are thrilled to have you and look forward to working with you as each of you grows and thrives and contributes to the missions of CCI and UNC Charlotte."

Please join Mili in welcoming all of the latest editions to our growing family.
