In keeping with the University’s educational mission, we expect our students to learn by doing. We challenge them to think creatively, analytically, and critically. We challenge them to gather and synthesize information. Based on this work, we expect them to develop a course of action that meets the standards of the University and allows them their self- and group expression. Student leaders are expected to accept and fulfill their responsibilities in all aspects of leadership.
Officially recognized student organizations plan activities, programs, and services that address a wide span of interests. From public service projects and recreation tournaments to performances and media, there is something for everyone. For a searchable database of student organizations, go to studentlife.unc.edu.
