To those that share our Commitment – this Commitment to Carolina,

Here at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, our nation's oldest public university, we have seen that the only aspect of our institution that has remained constant is change. At Carolina, the charge for change – the fight for an equitable experience regardless of gender, sex, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or political affiliation – though, has always commenced at the hands of its students. Students who recognized the needs of their peers. Students who recognized the fundamental notion of an institution of higher education "of, by and for the people." Students who understood that while UNC aims to shine "light and liberty" into all of the communities it touches, our light can, must, and will shine brighter still.

It is that faith: faith in a tomorrow unlike any other – faith in the Tar Heels of tomorrow – that has propelled the development of this campaign: The Commitment to Carolina. 

Launched by UNC's 100th Student Body President Lamar Richards's Administration, it is this Commitment  – our shared commitment as Tar Heels – that commemorates 100 years of the Executive function of student student-self governance. However, it also marks a new beginning – a foundation for the 100 years to come, in support of student self-governance at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Join us in building that foundation – together. Contribute to support tomorrow's Tar Heels by supporting student self-governance at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Yours for Carolina – today, tomorrow, and always,

Kartik Tyagi '23

UNC Undergraduate Vice President

Inaugural Director, The Commitment to Carolina
