How Arts Everywhere uses University funding to promote the arts in Emil Kang's absence

Former Chancellor Carol Folt, in conjunction with Emil Kang, established Arts Everywhere in 2016, connecting UNC students and staff to the arts. Although Kang stepped down from his position in 2019, the initiative continues to grow and make the arts central to the student experience at UNC. From the Morrison Art Studio to the Gallery 109 space, ArtsEverywhere is setting new goals for 2020 and beyond. Here's how Arts Everywhere is continuing to grow and promote arts at the University, given $500,000 in funding at the start of every fiscal year from the office of the chancellor.

Memoir from UNC grad tells her story of survival

Rachael Brooks's memoir tells her survival story after being sexually assaulted soon after graduating from UNC. “Beads: A Memoir about Falling Apart and Putting Yourself Back Together Again” explores Brooks's battle with the justice system, and the support it took to overcome her trauma — an exploration she hopes will help other survivors.
