Listening Sessions

Last May, Chancellor Philip L. Dubois appointed the Niner Nation Remembrance Commission in response to the tragic shooting on April 30th. The Commission was charged with thoughtfully and compassionately leading a comprehensive process to determine how to best memorialize the victims; how to best remember the tragedy that occurred on April 30th, a day that will forever be part of UNC Charlotte’s history; and, what should be the future utilization of Kennedy 236, the site of the shooting.

With the start of the new academic year, the Commission has begun its work and its first priority is listening to our campus community and hearing its suggestions and feedback on the proposed memorial, remembrance and future use of Kennedy 236. Beginning next week, the Commission will be hosting two listening sessions for students, faculty and staff, as well as two listening sessions for alumni and community members. Session details are as follows:
