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.

UNC Charlotte's Continuing Education department's Brown Bag Series, which began over the summer, continues their lineup of free educational events covering a variety of topics.

The next event, scheduled for December 3 at 12:00 PM, will focus on "The Five Biggest Trends Shaping Your Future." During the one hour seminar, Jason Mink, founder and president of COGNITION, will share what he has learned through running a marketing and web design agency serving for-profit companies and non-profits organizations in a variety of industries. Participants will learn how to identify and understand trends, connect the trends to the challenges they are facing in life and business, and encourage them to take the first few steps to addressing a future that will be very different from the past.
