Under the guidance of UNC’s Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, I created the Black History Month student coordinator position. In this role, I was responsible for all of UNC’s event planning, public relations and marketing. I built and fostered relationships with local businesses, professors and university offices, as well as other multicultural groups on campus. In 2012, as a result of my work with a 4-person steering committee, UNC held 37 events for Black History Month, including the Kickoff Jamboree, which I coordinated. I conducted post-event surveys to evaluate our performance and improve programming in the future.
