Serving the Tar Heel State

Public service is a critical part of Carolina’s mission, and Tar Heels are finding numerous ways to fulfill that goal and serve communities far and wide.

Our students work with nonprofits and community organizations throughout the year to address critical issues and challenges facing North Carolinians. By volunteering and sharing the skills they’re honing in the classroom, they’re bringing our mission to life and spreading it across our state.
