North Carolina Central University Hurricane Florence Relief Efforts

North Carolina Central University Eagles soar when called to action. Members of the university community have heard and seen many urgent needs for support in the wake of this crisis. The impact of Hurricane Florence has taken several lives and devastated many counties in North Carolina.

“In Truth and Service”: NC Central has been busy planning and executing several projects to provide support and relief to those in need. Please help our campus by joining us in our #NCStrong campaign.

Student Support

Although NCCU is 100% operational, Hurricane Florence affected many of our students. Hundreds of our students are from the southern and eastern counties hit hardest and still recovering from the aftermath of this massive storm. Let’s show how the NCCU family supports our Eagle students!

If someone you know is experiencing signs of distress, seek help by contacting the National Suicide HelpLine: 1-800-273-TALK, the NCCU Police Department at (919) 530-6106 or the local police (911). Staff in the Counseling Center are available during normal business hours in the Student Health Building, (919) 530-7646, or through the NCCU Police after hours (919-530-6106).
