Dance Marathon Continues Tradition of Support

For the third consecutive year, UNC Charlotte students danced the night away to raise funds for the Levine Children’s Hospital.

The 12-hour Charlotte Dance Marathon, held Nov. 7 - 8, generated $49,049.73 in donations for the hospital. A student-led initiative, Charlotte Dance Marathon is a legacy project of the Levine Scholars Program. It was created in 2013 under the name 49er Dance Mine. The event featured a variety of activities, dancing and other entertainment. The marathon is the finale to a sustained fundraising effort involving a number of student organizations.

Organizers noted this third annual event was an effort to continue a tradition of community engagement in which University students raise funds for and generate awareness of the Levine Children’s Hospital.

New Part-time Master's Degree in Social Work

A new master’s program in the UNC Charlotte School of Social Work will make it possible for enrollees to earn a graduate degree as a part-time student while taking many classes remotely.

The School of Social Work in the College of Health and Human Services will begin offering a part-time plan of study for its Master of Social Work (MSW) degree beginning in summer 2016. Created with working professionals in mind, the curriculum is the same as that offered in the full-time MSW program but allows students to earn the degree in three years, rather than two.

The School of Social Work developed the program in concert with conversations with regional program managers and service staff in disciplines that employ social workers.
