The rich history of Carolina women’s athletics boasts 40 national championship titles, 40 individual national champions and four active Hall of Fame coaches. Perhaps even more impressive than this, is the inspiring collection of career paths forged by our women student-athlete alumnae. From doctors to CEOs to teachers, Carolina women have demonstrated time and again that their accomplishments in competition are just the beginning of their impact on the world.
FORevHER Tar Heels is an initiative led by The Rams Club and Carolina Athletics to celebrate and champion the women of Carolina Athletics’ past, present and future.
The Rams Club and Carolina Athletics aim to engage and activate a network of Tar Heels that will:
- Offer opportunities to outstanding young women student-athletes to be part of the Carolina Family.
- Provide resources for Carolina’s women’s sport programs to ensure success.
- Participate in the development of student-athlete leaders who will impact their communities.
- Celebrate the successes of Carolina Athletics letterwomen
- Deliver the best student-athlete experience in the country!
CHAMPION. INSPIRE. SUPPORT
FORevHER Tar Heels is building and inspiring a Carolina community to champion our women student-
athletes through financial support of 15 teams, scholarships, facilities and a mentorship program.
This collaborative effort will enhance the Carolina student-athlete experience and allow Rams Club

these women’s lives.

The Richard A. Baddour Carolina Leadership Academy, the first leadership development program in collegiate athletics, provides a four-year curriculum, preparing Tar Heel student-athletes for successes on and off the field.
The importance of women’s athletics at Carolina is evidenced in the world-class facilities built for our women’s programs during the Campaign for Carolina Athletics. Since 2015, UNC Athletics and The Rams Club have provided new facilities for volleyball, softball, gymnastics, field hockey, women’s soccer, women’s lacrosse and women’s track and field. Recently announced are facility upgrades for women’s golf, women’s tennis, and women’s basketball. With each new facility, our coaches are better armed to recruit the best and brightest to Chapel Hill.
Private support enables our women’s teams compete at a championship level in
these world-class facilities.
