About CUEF


CUEF is designed to monitor the professional environment of the Carolina Union employees and mediate any difficulties that students may encounter in the building. The Employee Forum also works through committees to implement social, educational, and professional programs that teach leadership skills to Union employees.


The Carolina Union Employee Forum was created in 2004 to observe the workplace of student employees and plan events that encourage interdepartmental social connections. The Forum has grown in size and particularized itself to work through three main committees: Community, Advocacy, and Professional Development.

CUEF holds bi-weekly meetings where any student staff member of the Carolina Union is welcome to come and voice any updates and/or concerns with their workplace environment. In these meetings members will also plan events such as Milk and Cookies, the CUEF Tailgate and Watch Party, the Halloween Extravaganza, and Friendsgiving. With all of this, CUEF chief concern is to serve its student employees and leave them with lasting social and professional skills that will be useful in their future endeavors.
