Find your voice, tell your story.

CHE's motto is, "Find your voice, tell your story." Our CHE participants come from different backgrounds, cultures, and traditions. Participants range in ages, come from different backgrounds, and include first year, continuing, and transfer students. They all have one thing in common; they are the first in their families to attend college. Throughout their academic journey, they will encounter many challenges. Fortunately, there are many academic student support programs like CHE available at UNC to support their academic achievements. As a CHE participant, they become part of a caring community that will support their academic and personal growth from their first year at UNC  through their graduation.

Our CHE participants overcome so many academic and personal challenges, yet they persist and succeed academically. They soon learn how their campus and community experience transforms them into professionals. Each CHE participant is the first to attend college in a family, each is unique, and each has his or her own story to tell.
