Support the Arts & Science Council and the State Employees Combined Campaign

Monday, September 18, 2023

This fall, faculty and staff have the opportunity to support the Arts & Science Council and the State Employees Combined Campaign Sept. 18–29. 

Join campaign co-chairs, Dean Catrine Tudor-Locke, College of Health and Human Services, and Jodi Kaplan, executive director of alumni engagement, in support of this community initiative.

During this two-week campaign, faculty and staff members can contribute to community funds through a direct donation or payroll deduction. Through this simple gesture, Charlotte faculty and staff can make a significant difference through their support.

“The ASC + SECC Campaign compels me for the many ways it so palpably activates the values we believe in as an institution. I am honored and excited to serve as co-chair for this campaign that supports important creative work and the many communities we serve.”
 - Jodi Kaplan
