UNC Charlotte is committed to cultivating diversity and inclusion throughout the campus.

Our campus community is comprised of people who represent the wide breadth of gender identities, sexualities, races and ethnicities, faith traditions, nationalities, and other social groups and backgrounds. All of these 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.

The Division of University Advancement is committed to:

  • Create a work environment and inclusive culture where people feel safe.
  • Spread awareness that diversity and inclusion is fundamental to the mission of the University and the Division.
  • Convene a Diversity Committee to oversee initiatives, enhance awareness and facilitate outreach.
