The Employee Forum has created a new committee, the Community Service Committee, to help promote UNC staff community service efforts. This committee, in coordination with members of Carolina Center for Public Service, Carolina Union Activities Board, and other campus organizations, will host various community service events throughout the year, similar in nature to the annual Carolina Blood Drive that is currently hosted by the Employee Forum each year. The committee will also advertise various other ways in which UNC Employees can participate in community service throughout Chapel Hill and the wider North Carolina community and use their community service leave.
In creating this new committee, we at the Employee Forum strive to fulfill the University’s Mission to “serve North Carolina, the United States, and the world through teaching, research, and public service” and also to “improve society and to help solve the world’s greatest problems.” This committee will help to ensure that we as employees of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill seek to foster an active and engaged commitment to our University and our wider community.
The more people we have helping us, the better we can do in establishing the UNC Faculty/Staff Community Service Initiative and hosting various community service opportunities through the Employee Forum! Please keep in mind that you do not have to be on the Employee Forum to serve on a committee! Even if you are just interested in helping out at the various events we plan throughout the year, that is also much appreciated. Every little bit helps.
If you are interested in signing up for the committee listserv or helping us out in any way, please email the Chair, Katie Musgrove at firstname.lastname@example.org.
