SecretaryMy name is Tiffany Carver and I am a Tar Heel! I’m a wife, mother of a beautiful daughter, and full-time employee here at UNC. I’ve worked at the University since February 2007. I’m also an alum of Carolina and truly embrace the "Carolina Way." I love working on this campus and currently work in the Office of Academic & Student Affairs at the School of Social Work. I have served on the Employee Forum previously (serving on both the Executive and Education and Career Development committees)and I am excited to be the Forum’s secretary. I really appreciate the experiences and connections established through being a forum delegate. I recognize the important work that the Forum does and my interest in advocacy work drives my interest in being part of the forum so that I may help better the experience that employees (especially staff) have working for UNC. Being more engaged in the University community is something that I strive to do and I feel the Forum provides lots of opportunities to do so.
