ABOUT

Another UNC is Possible is a campaign initiated by the Workers of UNC, a coalition of campus
workers, graduate students, and faculty in the UNC System. The Covid-19 pandemic has
exacerbated longstanding problems within the UNC System, including racial and economic
injustices. To respond ethically to the dual public health and economic crises, state and university
leaders must address the underlying systemic problem: the business model of higher education and
chronic underfunding of our university system.


The crises also increase the urgency of using campus and system endowments in a socially
responsible manner. University resources must be used to support the wellbeing of students,
workers, and neighbors, while divesting from fossil fuels and other investments that do not reflect
the values of our community.
