UNC Alumni Association

We take pride in being UNC Bears

In fact, you won’t find a bigger, bolder group of graduates than the network of UNC alumni. And through adversity we band together as one community, supporting our fellow Bears, students and alumni alike.

We may live in different cities, be graduates of different class years, and pursue different careers, but together we are UNC's Bear Network and we believe in the power of giving back.

Once a Bear, Always a Bear

Congratulations Class of 2020

Welcome to UNC's newest alumni!


Thank you to UNC alumna and the 2020 Commencement keynote speaker Katherine Archuleta '76.

We encourage all UNC alumni to take a few minutes to listen to her words and wisdom, and to be inspired by your own path toward and following completion of a UNC education.
