Contributing to student personal development. Specifically, we offer our Ambassadors Program as well as programming for our Native Pathways to Professional Disciplines series.
Campus Community Engagement
Providing information, education and service to the Carolina Campus Community. Programming includes the Welcome Extravaganza, Elder in Residence, American Indian Heritage Month and various Inclusion and Awareness Trainings.
