Due to ongoing concerns and preventative measures regarding COVID-19, in-person alumni events are canceled but we will provide ongoing virtual engagement options. We appreciate your understanding as we prioritize health and safety. Updates will be published to our COVID-19 information page as the situation develops, including campus-wide event cancellations.

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.
