Alumni Career Panels

Success Looks Like ME

Success looks different for every UNC Bear, that's why we introduce students and recent graduates to diverse, successful alumni from different backgrounds, cities, class years and careers. When a diversity of alumni say "Success Looks Like ME," students and recent graduates can see a path toward their own professional success after college.

Bears Go Big

UNC Bears go out into the world to do BIG and significant work. Meet Lewis Curtis, B.A. Liberal Arts, 1992, Director of Microsoft Services Disaster Response & Humanitarian Services.

I love it because we get rid of the politics. We get rid of the bureaucracy. The teams focus on doing what’s right. Without question. Without condition.

See other Bears going big.
