Each summer, the University Office for Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) sponsors Uplift PLUS. Uplift PLUS is a five-week program during Carolina’s Summer Session II, in which participants live on campus, attend SAT/ACT coaching sessions, and take English 100 – a 3 credit hour course.

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 way:

    • In-depth learning session – 1.5 hours
      • This session will offer students an in-depth and hands-on learning opportunity.
      • These sessions should be more detailed and differentiated than Project Uplift sessions.
      • Examples of past sessions include: Physical Therapy Simulation Lab, Theory of Design Workshop, Chemistry Lab simulations and Public Relations Case Studies.

We ask that you commit to one or more sessions on the dates below from 10:15-11:45am during the following Uplift PLUS program dates: 6/23/19 – 7/26/19.
