New Organization: Champions for Change

Champions for Change is a group of campus leaders dedicated to changing fraternity men’s perceptions, attitudes, and beliefs on the topic of gender-based violence. Champions for Change works with campus partners and peers to create a culture of awareness, safety, prevention, and equip fraternity men with skills allowing them to take an active role in violence prevention.

Our program consists of young men representing various chapters of the UNC IFC Fraternity system. As the largest student group on campus, we believe we have the power, potential, and responsibility to fulfill a leadership role within our community to end gender-based violence throughout campus. Our program’s goal is to obtain a better understanding of fraternity men’s perceptions, attitudes, and beliefs on the topic of gender-based violence in an effort to not only create a culture of awareness, safety, and prevention but also to equip fraternity men with skills allowing them to take an active role in violence prevention.

Interested in getting involved or have any questions? Click here for their HL page and you can contact us at u nc.c4c@gmail.com

Summer Student Organization
Consulting & Support

With the shifts and uncertainty of campus life for the 2020-2021 academic year due to COVID-19, the Office of Student Life & Leadership (SLL) wants to help you prepare for virtual and/or in-person engagement with your student organization membership. A few initiatives that we will be launching this summer:

  • A new bi-weekly summer newsletter will be released in the coming weeks to replace the weekly SLL bulletin. The ‘State of Student Orgs’ is a bi-weekly resource informing student organization officers and members on what’s going on regarding student involvement over the summer and gearing up for the 2020-2021 academic year. It will serve as a one-stop-shop for communication about programming, recruitment, and community building. A way for student organizations to engage with SLL virtually. Be on the lookout for the first edition!
  • Summer Student Organization Consulting is a new initiative where student org officers can request a one-hour consultation with a full-time SLL staff member. We will be releasing more information in the coming weeks.
  • Lee Roberts will be available every Monday (11a-1p) and Friday (1-3p) to hold ‘Office Hours‘ for student org officers to ask any questions or just drop in to provide insight into what you all are currently navigating or experiencing with your student org. Contact Lee (leerob@email.unc.edu) via email to gain access to the zoom link.
  • We are developing a ‘Virtual Summer Involvement Guide‘ that will serve as the main resource for your organization and how to keep your organization engaged over the summer. As well as streamlining our resources so that they are easily accessible for all members of the organization.
  • Engaging the UNC student org community virtually via the SLL Social Media platforms using the hashtag #UNCStudentlife and #UNCReflects so be on the lookout for ways to engage in those discussions. Contact us to learn more!

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.

Undergraduate, graduate and professional school students who need assistance due to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 should email covidcareforstudents@unc.edu or ccfs@unc.edu.

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 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!

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.

Undergraduate, graduate and professional school students who need assistance due to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 should email covidcareforstudents@unc.edu or ccfs@unc.edu.

LEAD Workshops: Conflict Resolution

Challenge: Learn what it means to lead ethically and test your ethical leadership in several case study scenarios

The Student Life & Leadership’s Leadership, Education, Action, Development (L.E.A.D.) workshop series provides UNC students with the opportunity to participate in leadership workshops throughout the year that focus on development within the context of academic, personal, and professional environments through a leadership and identity-focused lens.

The LEAD Challenge workshops are centered on the social change model, where leadership is viewed as a process and not a position, and promotes the values of equity, social justice, self-knowledge, personal empowerment, collaboration, citizenship, and service. The model has 3 components: 1. Individual Values 2. Group Values, and 3. Citizenship. Students would be required to attend at least 1 workshop per area of the social change model. After attending 1 per area of the model, students will have the flexibility to go to any of the other LEAD workshops throughout the year to meet the six-workshop requirement in order to complete the challenge.

Our next workshop will be March 23rd from 5:30 to 6:30 PM, and will take place in Union room 3503. RSVP Here.

Challenge: Learn what it means to lead ethically and test your ethical leadership in several case study scenarios

The Student Life & Leadership’s Leadership, Education, Action, Development (L.E.A.D.) workshop series provides UNC students with the opportunity to participate in leadership workshops throughout the year that focus on development within the context of academic, personal, and professional environments through a leadership and identity-focused lens.

The LEAD Challenge workshops are centered on the social change model, where leadership is viewed as a process and not a position, and promotes the values of equity, social justice, self-knowledge, personal empowerment, collaboration, citizenship, and service. The model has 3 components: 1. Individual Values 2. Group Values, and 3. Citizenship. Students would be required to attend at least 1 workshop per area of the social change model. After attending 1 per area of the model, students will have the flexibility to go to any of the other LEAD workshops throughout the year to meet the six-workshop requirement in order to complete the challenge.

Our next workshop will be March 23rd from 5:30 to 6:30 PM, and will take place in Union room 3503. RSVP Here.
