The Carolina Union administration, led by Director Crystal King, spearheads the Union's efforts to create safe, inclusive and educational experiences that help students maximize their time at Carolina. With a commitment to serving every student and every student organization, CU Administration oversees all of the events and services we offer. In addition to handling the day-to-day administrative needs of the Union, we can assist you with questions regarding the general operation of the Union, Union student employee paychecks, payment of invoices for Union services, and other administrative issues.

Our Organization

The many co-curricular programs, services and facilities supported by the Union are developed and operated with a focus to serve the students whose fees fund our organization and therefore are intended to impact the intellectual and experiential climate of the University and provide opportunities for campus members to engage in debate, conversation, interaction, and learning. Managed by 49 full time staff and over 160 student employees, the Carolina Union builds a sense of community as a unifying force on campus and provides students the space and resources needed to put theory into practice.

We are members of Association of College Unions International (ACUI) and  NASPA: Student Affairs in Higher Education.
