STEM departments innovate courses with active learning

On chemistry professor Thomas Freeman’s bookshelf, a row of DNA models are on display. The colorful models, made from pipe cleaners, beads and wood, were created by students in Freeman’s honors biochemistry class.  It’s an example of how science, technology, engineering and mathematics education is changing at UNC. 


Tim Osborn, physics graduate student, was one of many community members to spend the night of Aug 24 at the monument.

Demonstrator safety threatened

A UNC football fan yelled “I will kill him. He will be done.” Three men threatened to bring their guns to campus. Two students found a tiki torch attached to a note with magazine letters cut out to say “see you soon” at the Old Well.  These are the threats Silent Sam protesters have faced.

UNC's campus reacts to a Trump presidency

An American-born Muslim female UNC student walks down Franklin Street and hears shouts of “Go Trump, you lost.” An American-born Hispanic male UNC student is scared of having to drop out of college because his parents may be deported.

UNC student protestors have reached the tipping point

They locked arms in Lenoir, sat during the national anthem in Kenan Stadium and lay on the floor of the Union with their fists raised. They've protested police brutality around campus. But they aren’t finished yet. Sophomore Jerome Simpson, organizer of two football game protests, said the protests are fighting against police brutality and something bigger — racism.
