The 2019 Tar Heel Bus Tour covered three routes in the western, eastern and southeastern regions of our state, stopping in a total of 26 towns and covering more than 1,600 miles along the way.
At each stop, 90 of our faculty and campus leaders learned more about the state we serve and what matters most to North Carolinians. They saw projects and initiatives led by our students, faculty and partners who are making a difference in the lives of North Carolinians, and they witnessed how the University is working with the state on critical issues.
Now, they are using the knowledge gained on the tour to inform the work they do every day at Carolina.
