A Message from the President
To my Fellow Braves,
Let me be the first to welcome you to the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. Founded in 1887 as an institution for future American Indian teachers, our university has transformed into a premier place of learning for students of all backgrounds. While you spend time here at UNCP, I challenge you to find ways to learn more about our rich culture and history, whether that be by taking a course in the American Indian Studies Department, attending events such as the #BraveNation Powwow, and more.
I also challenge you to explore the campus and find things that interest you. With over 100 student organizations that have areas of focus ranging from sustainability to the fine arts to LGBTQ+ pride, I guarantee that there is something for you to get involved with. If you cannot find that perfect organization for you, take the initiative to bring a new one to our community! Offices, like that of Campus Engagement and Leadership, have a team of student leaders and professional staff that can assist you in being successful on campus.
One organization that I would like to highlight, of which I serve as President, is the Student Government Association (SGA). SGA is here to serve as the student body’s official avenue for advocacy and representation. SGA works to ensure that your voice and opinion is heard by faculty, staff, and administration. We strive to promote the wellbeing of our school so that all students are able to be their best in an inclusive, supportive, and evolving environment.
My goal - and the goal of SGA - is that when your time here at UNCP is over, you will have developed a deep and personal connection to our campus and with the Town of Pembroke. While we all come from different backgrounds and have different personal stories that make us the individuals who we are, I hope that we will all be able to unite under the banner of the #BraveNation Community.
May black and gold float on forever,
