In 1969 a group of students came together to create a unique and necessary program to enhance the diversity the student population at UNC-Chapel Hill. The program was Project Uplift. Now 45 years later, the two-night, three-day program has become a unifying factor for many Tar Heels even before they began their studies at Carolina. In recognition of 45 years of excellence, and the difference it made in their lives, all Project Uplift alumni are invited to celebrate their unity and attend the PU 45 anniversary celebration.
Among UNC-Chapel Hill’s incredibly diverse student population, there is one experience that united many Tar Heels before they even began their studies: Project Uplift. The recruitment program run by Diversity and Multicultural Affairs is now in its forty-fifth year, and Project Uplift alumni are invited to attend the anniversary celebration on May 2-3, 2014.
