UNC Alumni Association

We take pride in being UNC Bears

In fact, you won’t find a bigger, bolder group of graduates than the network of alumni who are a part of the UNC Alumni Association.

We bleed Blue & Gold, we proclaim our UNC ties with pride, and we believe in the power of giving back. We may come from different class years, different cities, and different careers, but together we believe - Once a Bear, Always a Bear

UNC Bear


Great, So Do We

And now is the perfect time to celebrate our Bear Pride.

From summer events to celebrating our newest graduates during commencement, you are sure to see the Alumni Association, our volunteers and our staff, active and around campus this season. And we want you to join us!
