Partnering together for student success

Each year, the Office of Undergraduate Retention and the Division of Student Affairs at UNC-Chapel Hill partner with colleagues from across campus to provide a day-long conference for faculty and staff on current issues in undergraduate student success.

Phillips Ambassadors Spotlight: Clay Hackney ’15

Clay Hackney, a Morehead-Cain Scholar, received the Chancellor’s Award for Economics in 2015, the prize for best economics thesis. He studied abroad in Beijing in 2013 as a Phillips Ambassador, and was awarded a U. S. State Department Critical Language Scholarship in 2015 for advanced Mandarin in Suzhou, China.
