Chancellor Carol Folt, Tar Heel Network Chair Thomas Lambeth ’57, N.C. General Assembly and other state officials will gather on Wednesday, April 19, at 5:30 p.m. for the 28th Annual Legislative Reception. Also attending the reception will be University officials, staff, alumni and students, with a performance by the UNC Clef Hangers.

The GAA’s Tar Heel Network sponsors this annual reception to provide an opportunity for state opinion leaders to express the importance of the University to them, to North Carolina and to members of the General Assembly. Among other issues, competitive faculty salaries and state-of-the-art facilities are critical for UNC to retain its world-class ranking and to preserve the value of Carolina diplomas.

More on the Tar Heel Network

The GAA-sponsored Tar Heel Network supports the University’s goals and priorities through advocacy with legislators. Since its inception in 1983, the Tar Heel Network has been actively involved in the passage of a capital bond initiative and the protection and preservation of the University’s overhead receipts. It also has helped deflect the passage of punitive budget proposals and has advocated with state legislators for appropriations that would permit UNC to become competitive in faculty salaries with California, Michigan, Virginia and UCLA.
