Since 2007, Carolina senior class marshals have led a student-centered giving campaign that encourages undergraduate seniors to leave their legacy on campus. Seniors are encouraged to give any amount they are able during their senior year to the class campaign, enabling seniors to leave their heelprint on Carolina and make gifts to the areas of campus that they love most.
Our Senior Campaign Featured Initiative voted on by the Class of 2022 is the Environmental Justice Undergraduate Research Program. This program enhances access to research and creates a bold course to improving society. By support this fund by the end of the year with a gift of $20.22, your gift will:
- Provide opportunities to your fellow Carolina students who are interested din conducting research on the topic of Environmental Justice in underserved North Carolina communities
- Create equity and accessibility for undergraduate students by providing stipends to the selected student researchers who otherwise could not afford to conduct the research
- Equip underserved populations in North Carolina with valid research to effectively communicate with community organizations and policy leaders at the local and state level to help correct any inequities uncovered in the research
Though seniors may make a gift of any amount to any area of campus to count towards Senior Campaign, this year senior marshals are encouraging gifts to the Environmental Justice Undergraduate Research Program. In addition, below are two additional high-impact campus funds that address some of the most significant problems our student body and campus face in 2022. Please see below to read more about these initiatives and make your senior gift on GiveUNC today!
