The UNC Asheville Alumni Association condemns racism. We are devastated by the violence that senselessly snatched away the lives of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many others. And when we say their names, we know that they are just a few of many names that need to be uplifted and remembered.

Last week, the Alumni Association participated in the “muting” of our social media channels to actively listen to the voices of our Black and African American students, alumni, faculty, and staff who are grieving, speaking out, and sharing evidence of how racism persists in our nation. This choice was made to give space to your voices, so they could be better heard.

We are listening and we hear you. We stand with you.

Your Alumni Association is also here for you: to encourage thoughtful discourse among our community members, to amplify the voices and experiences of our black alumni, to compile and share educational resources, and to create meaningful connections between alumni of all races, generations, and backgrounds. Together, our Bulldog community can move forward by providing a safe space to have difficult conversations and help create meaningful change.

We encourage you, our alumni, to engage.

The Alumni Association Board of Directors serves to provide support and take action, representing all of our community members and building meaningful bridges back to our alma mater. This is the first in a series of social media posts and communications that you will receive inviting you to participate by listening, learning, and taking action in solidarity. We welcome your voice. We stand together!

UNC Asheville Alumnus Dr. Ian Nelligan on Pandemic, Innovation, and Caring for Patients - Stories from UNC Asheville

“One of the valuable things about a liberal arts education is that you have opportunities to immerse yourself in both scientific and creative scholarly concentrations. You get a very multi-dimensional foundation and I think it cultivates interests in different fields, like medicine, health disparities and technology, that are ultimately synergistic.” – Dr. Ian Nelligan, Class of 2004

UNC Asheville alumnus Dr. Ian Nelligan, a clinical assistant professor in the department of medicine, division of primary care and population health at Stanford, had been working hard on a proposal to roll out video visits for Stanford Health Care’s family medicine clinic over an 18-month period.T...

The Student Environmental Center educates students and advocates for sustainability in a holistic sense of the word, which is why we donated a portion of our budget in support of the Student Emergency Fund." -Sean Miller, Class of 2023
