Recognizing Influential Initiatives

Honoring the initiatives of a former dean

Honoring the initiatives of a former dean

The late Hayden B. Renwick began his legacy at Carolina when he became associate dean in the Office for Student Counseling in UNC’s College of Arts & Sciences in 1973. 

Throughout his time in this position, he created a peer-mentoring program that assigned an academically successful upperclassman to each first-year African American and American Indian student. He also established an annual awards program recognizing all African American and American Indian undergraduates with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher. 

To honor his efforts, beginning in 2019 the annual Hayden B. Renwick Academic Awards Ceremony will recognize all Black/African American, American Indian/Native American, Hispanic/Latinx students who have achieved a cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or higher (reflecting the university average).
