Looking for a way to get and stay involved throughout your years at Carolina?
Apply for the North Carolina Fellows Program! NCF is a four-year cohort leadership program, designed to challenge participants to realize more of their potential as leaders by means of a 3-credit seminar, interactions with campus collaborators, faculty, staff and community members. An intensive examination of community service philosophy is also undertaken at the time of membership.
NCF starts with a kick-off event at the beginning of each year and continues programming throughout each academic year. Monthly seminars are held in September, October, November, January, March and April. Seminars typically have a facilitator and, dinner is provided to the attendees. Once first-year students accept their invitation to join the program, they must attend a retreat held in late March to mid-April. Additional required retreats will be held during the junior and senior years. In lieu of a retreat during the participants’ sophomore year of school, they will participate in a 3-credit sophomore seminar in the fall.
Only first-years are allowed to apply. Applications can be found at http://leadership.unc.edu/index.php/application-proces. Any questions? Office hours will be held in the CLD suite on Friday, January 15 and Tuesday, January 19 from 11am to 3pm.
