Add Online Locations to Events
In order to support student organizations to host events for the rest of Spring 2020, Heel Life now has an “add online location” option when creating events. We hope this will help you promote online events such as Zoom meetings that are easy to access for your members and the Carolina Community.
Carolina Jump Rope
The Jump Ahead team is seeking new volunteers and core team members for this Spring and the 2020-2021 school year. Jump Ahead is a grant-funded UNC student venture that runs an after-school program to engage local youth in physical activity and healthy eating. The program includes jump rope and interactive snack activities led by our volunteers and core team members. We have a few positions available; click this link to view brief descriptions and how to apply. This is an excellent opportunity for students to gain practical skills and work with a health-oriented organization.
If you want your organization to be featured as part of our weekly organization spotlight, all you have to do is fill out this form here!
The Student Orgs Team from the Office of Student Life & Leadership (SLL) will hold a live chat session using the hashtag #ASKUNCStudentLife every Tuesday from 3-4p on Instagram Live @sllunc and Twitter @UNC_SLL.
Each week will have a different topic to provide an avenue for the student org community to interact with each other and to engage with our team in a live Q&A session, and you can find more information on this event page. We know that officer transitions, recruitment for next year, and finances are on the minds of many so join us!
2019-2020 Deadline for New Organizations

Student Support Helping Heels
To meet the needs of Carolina students adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the University has established the Carolina Student Impact Fund.
Funds are already being deployed to help undergraduate, graduate and professional school students in need, thanks to generous gifts from Carolina alumni and friends committed to helping Tar Heels as the University takes precautions to ensure the safety of students and mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
“These are challenging times for us all, but especially for those without the financial means to weather this unprecedented global event,” said Renee and John Grisham, who made a generous contribution to the Carolina Student Impact Fund. “We simply want to do our part and we are hoping others will join us to make sure our students have the resources and support to get through this.”
Gifts of all sizes are making a real and lasting impact on the lives of Carolina students. Gifts to the fund help students who budgeted carefully for the semester but now face unexpected hardships — the loss of an off-campus job due to business shutdowns; the cost of an unexpected trip home from campus; or the need to purchase urgent supplies now that dining halls and dorms are inaccessible to many students. The fund also provides assistance to students who need help returning from interrupted study abroad and exchange programs or those who need technology upgrades to complete the rest of the spring semester’s classes online.
From the makers of the LEAD Challenge, The Office of Student Life and Leadership is proud to present the LEAD DIY (Do it yourself) Kits. Leadership development doesn’t have to look like an in person workshop or a facilitated conversation. Leadership development can also be done from the comfort of your home over video chat with your friends and family! The LEAD DIY kits give you the necessary tools to dive into leadership topics in a fun and engaging fashion. Workshops will be posted every Monday between March 30th 2020 and the end of the semester! Due to these socially distant times, the LEAD DIY activities still count towards the completion of the overall LEAD Challenge (complete a minimum of 6 workshops and receive a certificate of completion and LEAD Lapel Pin). Lastly, the workshops are all designed to be done with others, so please connect with your family, your roommates, or whoever else through in person or virtual means and have some fun together!
We will be updating this site regularly with additional LEAD challenges so follow @carolinaunion on social media to find out when the next workshop is available!
The Office of Student Life & Leadership is providing free Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) codes and virtual consultations to students. The power of personality type within the context of leadership development comes from self-knowledge. This test is designed to help us leverage our understanding of our own patterns of behavior, preferences, and decision making, to better navigate the world around us!
