University to Observe #GivingTuesday

UNC Charlotte will join the national #GivingTuesday movement to encourage the 49er community to give back during this holiday season. #GivingTuesday is an effort to harness the collective power to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.

Taking place Dec. 2, #GivingTuesday will provide faculty, staff and students the chance to write a note to a U.S. service member. There will be three locations on campus, Student Union, Belk Tower and the lawn near Cato Hall, where anyone can stop by from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM, or individuals can stop by the Veterans Student Services Office in the Cone University Center, room 346, to take blank notes for their classroom or office to participate.

#GivingTuesday is a counter narrative to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, because it reminds individuals that the spirit of the holiday giving season should be about community and not just consumerism, said Kathy Calvin, CEO of the U.N. Foundation.

MSW Program Ranked Most Affordable in the Nation

UNC Charlotte’s Master of Social Work degree is the most affordable program in the nation, according to the website Social Work Degree Guide.

To select its list, the website looked at a number of resources, including the average in-state graduate tuition listed on the National Center for Education Statistics’ College Navigator. The guide noted that for the top 100 graduate social work degrees, the average in-state tuition in 2014 was $15,416. It listed UNC Charlotte’s MSW tuition at $4,008.

Housed in the School of Social Work in the College of Health and Human Services, the Master of Social Work is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education, the nationally recognized accrediting body for the field. The 62-credit hour program prepares graduates to be "advanced practitioners of social work who engage client systems at all levels in a manner consistent with social work values and ethics."
