Since its founding in 1999, the Carolina Center for Public Service has been active in UNC’s response and relief efforts in the aftermath of disasters in North Carolina, the nation and the world. In the wake of devastation, students, faculty and staff at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill stand ready to assist in any way that we can. The Carolina Center for Public Service serves as a resource of disaster relief information. For those looking to assist, volunteer or donate, see information about current disaster relief efforts.

Current disaster relief efforts

Hurricane Harvey, August 2017 and Hurricane Irma, September 2017 – Details are posted on the Hurricane Harvey/Irma Disaster Relief page.
