HOW TO GET INVOLVED
The College of Liberal Arts & Sciences has over 56,000 alumni who live, work and make a difference throughout the world. Many of our alumni, along with friends of the College, continue to stay connected with us in a variety of ways. We hope you will stay connected, and join us for events, volunteerism options, and other opportunities to help our students prepare for their futures.
Join the CLAS Alumni Council and engage with alumni to create meaningful connections and advance career opportunities for current students and the initiatives of the college. The purpose of the UNC Charlotte College of Liberal Arts & Sciences (CLAS) Alumni Council is to strengthen the relationship between CLAS alumni, students, and the college. If you are a CLAS alumnus interested in making a meaningful impact at UNC Charlotte, we are currently accepting applications.
One avenue for getting involved is through the College’s programs and events offered to the university community and the broader community. For a full listing of upcoming programs, please check our events calendar. In response to COVID-19 social distancing requirements, many events currently are being presented virtually, with a focus on continuing to offer engaging, interactive events on timely topics.
Among our efforts to share knowledge with the community, we traditionally offer the Personally Speaking expert authors' series, a public lecture as part of the Anabel Aliaga-Buchenau Witness in Residence Initiative, the Witherspoon Lecture, the Levine Lecture, the Bertha Maxwell-Roddey Lecture, the Botanical Gardens Urban Roots events, and the Barnhardt Seminar on Ethics and the World of Business, along with numerous other community conversations. Through these community events, the College offers speakers of national, international and local stature to educate, challenge and engage the community.
We welcome volunteers, who can help our students and faculty in many ways. Volunteers offer expertise through service on advisory committees, service on alumni panels to provide insights to our students, the offering of internships, and in many other ways. You are welcome to reach out to the College or to the department(s) where you received your degree(s). We are following COVID-19 safety guidelines, so volunteerism at this time might involve virtual presentations to students or similar activities.
We also welcome your help with our LEADS initiative. LEADS offers expansive options to meet students’ individual needs and interests, and our students would benefit from your support.
