Register to Vote with Turbovote
UNC Charlotte’s partnership with TurboVote is an important aspect of our student-based voter registration and mobilization efforts.
TurboVote is a non-profit agency that runs a software program to help students register to vote, update their voter registration, and request an absentee ballot. Turbovote will send participants all necessary voter registration forms along with a stamped envelope. The software also sends electronic reminders to participants regarding important local and federal elections dates and locations; you must sign up by September 26.
University to Host Mass CPR Training
UNC Charlotte will host a mass cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training exercise for students, faculty and staff on Wednesday, October 8, 2014, from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM in the Student Activities Center (SAC). The training is designed to increase the number of people on campus who know how to save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest. Each training session will last for 30 minutes.
This is the second year the University’s Office of Environmental Health & Safety has partnered with Mecklenburg EMS Agency (Medic) to promote a mass CPR training. Last fall, over 250 students, faculty and staff learned hands-only CPR at the event. EH&S hopes to increase that number to 350 or more. Medic personnel will teach participants proper hand placement and how to perform compressions on a CPR manikin. Participants will be able to ask questions and learn the importance of quick action during a cardiac arrest.
