A Message from the President
I am Taliyah Daniels, your 2022-2023 Student Government Association President, and it is a great honor and privilege to welcome you to the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. Thank you for choosing BraveNation as your home for the next step in your journey! The Student Government Association respectfully acknowledges that the lands within and surrounding present-day Robeson County are the traditional homelands and gathering places of many Indigenous peoples. We share an ongoing responsibility to safeguard these lands.
The University of North Carolina at Pembroke was founded in 1887 with the goal of preparing American Indian students to educate other American Indians. As North Carolina’s historical American Indian University, it has blossomed into the most diverse university in the UNC system. With a student population of over 8,000 students, UNCP continues to provide a distinctive personal experience, while cultivating knowledge and education through close relationships between students, faculty, staff, and administration.
It is our goal and aim as the Student Government Association to make your college experience exciting and memorable, as well as provide you the opportunity to lead and serve your fellow students and community. The Student Government Association’s purpose is to represent and safeguard the interests of students. Students are our number one priority, and are important to the advancement of the future of our University.
As you start this new academic year, I encourage you to get involved and participate in the many opportunities and initiatives brought to you by UNCP throughout the year. I am beyond excited to serve alongside an exceptional group of students, faculty, staff, and administrators. UNCP is a unique place and will provide special opportunities to students you will not get anywhere else. From clubs, fraternities and sororities, intramural sports, student publications, to over 110 active student organizations, the Office for Campus Engagement and Leadership can connect you with groups of like-minded individuals to share your passion with, and help you learn and grow as a leader during your time at UNCP.
I highly recommend utilizing the free resources available to you on campus. You will find resources to help you academically, such as the Writing Center, Tutoring Center, Accessibility Resource Center, and more. In addition, Counseling and Psychological Services, Student Health Services, and the Career Center are all services provided to give students the resources needed to be academically resilient, succeed in college, and prepare you for your future career.
I challenge you to find your community at UNCP by getting involved, attending events, and pushing yourself in your coursework. This can help you find and pursue your passions and help you become a better leader for tomorrow. Again, I want to welcome you to BraveNation. Go Braves!
Together we can, together we will.
