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.

We are committed to addressing the cultural, economic, educational, environmental, health, and social needs of the greater Charlotte region.  Our campus community is comprised of people who represent the wide breadth of gender identities, races and ethnicities, faith traditions, nationalities, and other social categories and backgrounds.  These varied identities and experiences enrich the University as a whole.  UNC Charlotte strives to celebrate and leverage the benefits of this diversity, and to sustain an inclusive and welcoming environment for all students, faculty, and staff.
