Student Recruitment

The Student Recruitment Committee assists the University in the successful recruitment of top-tier students to Carolina. The growing size of the student body, as well as the increasing ability of other top universities to attract the best students via merit scholarships, makes the goal of this committee essential. During the 2011-2012 BOV year, this group's work expanded to focus on students who had been invited to participate in the Honors Carolina program, with BOV members supporting Carolina's success in increasing these top academic recruits.

Government Relations

The Board of Visitors has combined its state and local efforts and added federal relations to create its current Government Relations Committee. The committee responds to the need for ongoing communication with federal, state and local leaders. Members address key University issues as they are affected by public policy. The committee builds on the strong relationships many board members already have with local, state and federal decision makers. This group also works to foster new relationships. Members are the first contacted when Carolina needs assistance with important legislative issues. Most importantly, members educate lawmakers to enable them to thoughtfully consider Carolina’s education, research and public service roles and goals. The committee works with other University constituents and supporters to advance the higher education and research cause. Local members stay informed about town and gown matters and help communicate the goals of the University to the local community.
