Why Give

Student Affairs is devoted to creating an integrated learning experience that helps students reach their educational, personal, and professional aspirations. The education of a college student is a combination of an excellent academic program with the application of learning to daily life. We work in partnership with the faculty and the academic administration to provide a holistic educational experience for all students. The development of students into educated, engaged, and committed leaders requires that Student Affairs provides the optimal conditions and environments in which learning and growth can take place.

A Note from Zack Hawkins

Friends and supporters of UNC Student Affairs,

Zach Hawkins

In a time like no other in our history, Student Affairs leaders are creating new paths to meet the mental health and basic needs of our students and ensure that the bonds of engagement through student activities and organizations are still strong. The work of University Career Services, Fraternity & Sorority Life and NC Fellows to develop leaders with the skills for 21st century opportunities have not paused because of COVID-19. We have also continued to offer the support our student veterans and budding social entrepreneurs need to thrive at Carolina.

If you believe that making this work possible is important,  we need your support. To find a way to give of your time, talent and/or treasure, please reach out to me at or 919-962-9077. Thanks for all that you do to support Carolina.
Go Heels!

Ways to support the Health and Well-Being Initiative
