Carolina Connects with North Carolina

The “Carolina Connects” initiative highlights the connections between the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the lives of North Carolinians and their communities.

Carolina Connects is taking Chancellor James Moeser and university officials around North Carolina to show ways in which Carolina's faculty, staff, and students serve the state’s communities and people. The stops illustrate work in areas such as economic development, health, and public education. In each town, Moeser meets with residents, tells them about Carolina's service, then he seeks other ways to connect with the state.

Our message is that the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill serves North Carolina every day in meaningful, relevant ways. In short, ‘Carolina Connects.’ Carolina has always played a significant leadership role in the life of this state. That is particularly true when the state has stood at a crossroads as we do now. Of all the crossroads we have faced, none is more uncertain than the one our state faces today. I firmly believe that this university has the power to make a difference.
