The Center for Human Enrichment (or CHE for short) staff provide students with the care, encouragement, and support they need to be successful. Each year the CHE program accepts approximately 60-70 new students. To be eligible, students must meet federal income guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Education, students must also be first-generation, that is students whose parents or legal guardians do not hold a bachelor’s degree.
CHE/SSS participants become part of a caring community that supports their academic and personal growth until they graduate from UNC. As part of our program, students benefit from:
• “CHE Connections”: A three day summer bridge program designed to prepare students for college success
• Personalized academic advising from Peer Mentors and Professional Advising Staff
• Peer tutors provide In-class and out-of-class writing support in English
• Evening Writing Lab which supports student's writing intensive courses in other subjects
• Assistance in understanding the financial aid process
• Small student-to-teacher ratios in CHE curriculum courses (i.e., ET 100, ENG 122/123, UNIV 101, LIB 150)
• Academic Study Skills Workshops
• Opportunities for leadership development
• Being part of a welcoming and inclusive environment
Accepted students must be committed to utilizing CHE's program services throughout their undergraduate career.
We hope that CHE can be a home away from home and a place where students can always come for answers to their questions, resources to solving problems, or to find a community that will celebrate their successes! Students are the sole purpose of our work!
