April 30, 2021, will again be a Day of Remembrance for UNC Charlotte with no classes held that day. In their place, virtual and in-person activities will commemorate the two-year anniversary of the campus shooting that took the lives of two students, injured four classmates and impacted all of Niner Nation.  

The University community is invited to participate in a variety of activities provided by the Center for Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), University Recreation (UREC), and the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), culminating with the University Virtual Remembrance Program at 5:15 p.m. All in-person activities will adhere to gathering limits and in compliance with public health guidelines.

The events honor the lives and bravery of Reed Parlier and Riley Howell, the strength of the survivors and the resilience of our community.
