Graduate Life Fellows Focused on Building Community

This year’s cohort of seven Graduate Life Fellows (GLFs) is focused on building community among their fellow students.

Through the Center for Graduate Life, the GLFs provide leadership-building opportunities through collaborative efforts with campus partners, including faculty, staff, graduate student organizations and various campus offices.

This fall, along with promoting local campaign efforts designed to give back to UNC Charlotte’s graduate community, the GLFs will spearhead “UNC Charlotte’s Got Your Back,” a major crowdfunding initiative that will provide Charlotte’s most at-risk elementary school children with basic educational resources. The initiative also will provide these children with exposure to real students in higher education who will their stories and offer reasons why they should never give up on their dreams.
