Alumni Relations

Alumni relations and advancement communication staff are responsible for informing and engaging thousands of alumni and friends throughout the Bear Network.

The staff also organize university events, connect students with alumni, and manage alumni outreach on behalf of the academic colleges and programs.


Every gift to UNC, no matter the size or designation, will make a difference in the education of our students, the research of our faculty, and in the service that we provide our community.  To facilitate UNC's advancement, the university's centralized development team works closely with local, national and corporate constituents to connect donor passion with institutional priorities. Visit UNC Give for information regarding the impact of philanthropy at UNC.
