The Cato College of Education has more than 20,200 alumni, with many residing in the Charlotte region. We are a powerful force in moving UNC Charlotte and the Cato College of Education to the forefront of 21st century education. We hope you will join us in leading this charge.


Alumni Council members serve two-year terms and may be eligible to serve an additional consecutive term. All members are expected to attend regular scheduled meetings of the Council. There will be two afternoon/evening meetings hosted annually. In addition, all members of the Council will serve on one standing committee and at various times, may volunteer to serve on an ad hoc committee. The Standing Committees of the Council include Student-Alumni Engagement, Development, Community Service, Alumni Awards, and Alumni Networking. Regional members (i.e. those who reside outside of the Charlotte region) may attend Council and committee meetings remotely via Zoom.
