Careers. Connections. Networks.

Your career after UNC can take you anywhere - from an urban classroom in Denver, to a Broadway stage in New York City.  But no matter where life takes you, you'll always be a Bear and we'll always be here. Here to connect you to the advisors, resources and programs which will help you launch (or relaunch) your career. Here when you're ready to celebrate your career success. Here when you're ready to help the next generation of Bears do the same. That's what we see as the professional power of your Bear Network.

Alumni Career Highlight

Tangier Barnes Wright

Africana Studies, minor in Environmental Studies '05

Director of Transportation Programs, Groundworks Denver

Alumni Career Advisor: UNC Connect

Tangier Barnes Wright grew up riding bikes, climbing trees and playing in Colorado's South Platte River with her sister. On family vacations, though, the would head to big cities: New York. Indianapolis. Cleveland. Barnes Wright fell in love with the way big cities worked - the roads, sidewalks, store fronts, delivery trucks, pedestrians - while also loving the quiet streets and fresh air of the country.  It is a background that inspires her career as a urban planner helping Denver residents who are disproportionately impacted by pollution, soil contamination and poorly designed infrastructure.
