Kevin Bailey PH.D, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs

Welcome to UNC Charlotte and Niner Nation! The staff within the Division of Student Affairs are committed to your personal, educational, mental and physical success as students. Treating students, and all the identities they bring with them, with care and respect is paramount.

The 2020-2021 academic year will be unlike any other in the University’s history. COVID-19 will affect everything you encounter including classes, dining, study space, riding the shuttle, living on campus, events and activities. Social distancing, hand sanitizers and face coverings will be ubiquitous as you return to campus or are attending UNC Charlotte for the first time.

However, we will not let the coronavirus detract from your experience! Opportunities still abound. Join a fraternity or sorority or one of over 400 student organizations. Cheer for the Niner Nation at an athletic event. Zip around campus on an E-scooter. Participate in a virtual meeting or event. If you want to talk to someone about depression, anxiety, gender or racial identity issues, or relationship issues, contact CAPS (Counseling and Psychological Services). If you do not have enough to eat, visit the Jamil Niner Food Pantry.

The more you put into your college experience the more you will get out of it. And should you stumble or falter, we are here to help you recover. If you can’t find what you’re looking for on the website, contact me at baileyk@uncc.edu or on Twitter at @unccvcsa

Sincerely,

Dr. Kevin W. Bailey
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
