Each summer, the University Office for Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) sponsors Project Uplift. Project Uplift is a weekend experiential program during Summer Session I for academically gifted rising high school seniors from underrepresented populations.

This program serves as an opportunity for the entire campus community to contribute to the rich diversity of Carolina’s applicant pool.  We hope that your unit/school/division will consider getting involved in one or more of the following ways:

  • Provide faculty support for a mock classroom – 1 hour
    • This session will expose students to the general UNC academic experience
  • Participate in the resource/college fair – 1.25hr
    • This fair will expose students to departments across campus and colleges from across the state
  • Lead an experiential learning session – 1.5hr (lab, simulation, group project)
    • This session will offer hands-on learning opportunities for participants

We are asking your unit/school/division to participate in at least one session during one of the following Project Uplift program dates:

  • May 24 – 26, 2018
  • May 31 – June 2, 2018
  • June 7 – 9, 2018
  • June 14 – 16, 2018
