UNC Charlotte Welcomes Diversity

Welcome to Diversity at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte!  This webpage provides information and links to programs, events, initiatives, data and resources that focus on the University’s commitment to diversity, access, and inclusion.  UNC Charlotte recognizes diversity as an essential component of a quality higher education, and to an academic experience that positions graduates for personal success and civic responsibility in the global environment of the 21st century.
