University to Participate in School Tools Campaign

UNC Charlotte is joining with Classroom Central, Communities in Schools and WSOC-TV for the 18th annual School Tools Campaign, which is a drive to collect and distribute school supplies to children who need them. All supplies collected will be distributed through Classroom Central, a free store for teachers and Communities in Schools site coordinators.

The University’s campaign will be Friday, Aug. 1, through Friday, Aug. 15. Donation sites will focus on the collection of the following items: pens, pencils, crayons, markers, ruled notebook paper and pocket folders; however, all school supplies will be accepted. Collection bins will be available at many locations on campus, including Atkins Library, the Barnhardt Student Activity Center, EPIC, and Foundation.

Continuing Education Begins Brown Bag Series

Starting this summer, UNC Charlotte's Continuing Education department will offer a series of free educational events covering a variety of topics.

The Brown Bag Series begins with a seminar on Becoming Social Security Savvy on August 6 at 12:00 PM at our Center City location. The discussion's topics will include how Social Security benefits are calculated, how benefits are taxed, maximizing spousal and survivor benefits, and personal claiming decisions. Participants will come away with a clear understanding of how monthly Social Security income changes based on the age at which you claim, strategic ideas for maximizing your personal Social Security benefits, and insight on how to incorporate Social Security into a comprehensive retirement income strategy.

This is event is free and open to the public, though registration is required.
