    The Build Our Community Together Fund supports the first initiative in the University’s strategic plan Carolina Next: Innovations for Public Good. Gifts to the fund will support work in three main areas: archives, history, research and curation; curriculum development and teaching; and engagement, ethics and reckoning.

    Donations to the fund will go toward:

    • creating conditions on campus that enable us all to thrive and feel like we all belong;
    • enhancing the educational benefits of diversity and inclusion through effective retention, recruitment and enrollment; and
    • prioritizing diversity, equity and inclusion in teaching, research and service, as well as in hiring, evaluation and promotion.
