School Supplies Drive Runs through August 26
UNC Charlotte is joining University City Connect for a school supplies donation drive to benefit the institutions that comprise Governor’s Village.
From Tuesday, Aug. 9, through Friday, Aug. 26, faculty, staff and students are encouraged to donate school items for students in the four Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) that make up Governor’s Village: Morehead STEM Academy, Alexander Elementary, Martin Middle and Vance High. These schools are located less than five miles from the University.
Collection bins will be in Auxiliary Services Building, Barnhardt Student Activity Center, Cato Hall, EPIC, Facilities Management Building, Foundation Building, Reese Building and Woodward Hall. Requested items include pencils, pens, erasers, ruled (loose-leaf) paper and pocket folders; however, all school supplies are welcomed.
'Coding Boot Camp' Offered for Web Developers
UNC Charlotte will launch a 24-week "Coding Boot Camp" certificate program this November to meet the growing local, national and global demand for web developers.
"The innovative, full-stack program is best-suited for motivated individuals looking for a new career challenge — one that puts them in the forefront of the digital economy," said Asher Haines, UNC Charlotte’s director of continuing education.
The Coding Boot Camp at UNC Charlotte, which will run from Nov. 8, 2016, through May 20, 2017, is designed to accommodate the schedules of students and working professionals, with two evening classes during the week (6:30 - 9:30 PM.) and a four-hour class on Saturdays (10:00 AM - 2:00 PM).
