The mission of UNC Federal Relations is to promote UNC’s education, research, national security efforts, patient care, and public service activities in an effort to increase federal support for all UNC institutions and affiliated entities. This office serves as the primary liaison between the University and Members of Congress, congressional staff, the White House, federal agencies, educational associations and media on matters of federal interest.
UNC Federal Relations also leads the University’s efforts to formulate and coordinate the federal priorities of UNC’s 17 campuses. The federal relations team provides support and service to our institutions by: strategic planning and issues management; responding to legislative inquiries; monitoring and analysis of federal legislation; identifying opportunities for our faculty to participate in congressional hearings, executive branch advisory groups and task forces, and national education forums; and promoting UNC campuses’ research, partnership for national security, and policy agendas with agencies and Congressional members.
Finally, the UNC Office of Federal Relations leads the UNC Partnership for National Security, a system-wide effort to develop partnerships with the Department of Defense and the U.S. Military. The team’s work is devoted to executing projects in cooperation with the North Carolina-based military community. Special partnerships are established with the United States Army Special Operations Command (USASOC), the Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC), the Maritime Civil Affairs and Security Training Command (MCAST), the Army Research Office (ARO), the Fleet Readiness Center East (FRC-East) and the North Carolina National Guard (NCNG).
What is the campus role in Federal Relations?
Each Chancellor shall designate a campus officer to carry out the function of a Federal Relations Officer (FRO). Collectively, campus federal relations officers make up the UNC Federal Relations Council.
