Noble Niner Institute

Noble Niner Institute at UNC Charlotte. The mission of the Institute is to create a campus climate where students are empowered to think about, talk about, and do something about issues effecting the UNC Charlotte community by engaging in meaningful dialogue, building specific strengths, and becoming catalysts for change.
We aim to select 49 student leaders as members of the Beta Class. They will walk away from this experience with lasting relationships, with tangible skills to apply to their communities, and with a strong understanding of the Noble Niner Honor Code. Our facilitators for this grande event are two UNC Charlotte Alums who've founded a social justice training company - more details to come!
The Institute will take place on October 22nd beginning with a "roll in" lunch at 12noon. Roll in signifies a soft-start to enjoy lunch and table topics. The curriculum and content discussions will be hosted from 1pm until 6pm. We understand that Explore will be hosted on this same day, which presents conflicts for some of the students. If you are able to do an early-release for those selected students, by all-means consider doing so.
While nominations are now closed, the applications are opened until this Friday - September 30th at 11:55pm.
