The Momentum Series is designed to create meaningful dialogue and connect students to opportunities for conversations around important issues and topics locally, nationally, and globally. These issues inspire programming to feature thought-provoking leaders who in turn are supported and complimented by other initiatives by the Leadership and Service Center and other offices and departments at Carolina.
