Office of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
UNCG fully supports and values an inclusive community where there is visible and meaningful representation of the diversity present in the wider community at all university levels. Diversity is the combination of characteristics, experiences, and competencies that make each person unique, and increases the value of our community. We strive to maintain a climate of equity and respect, where we protect the rights of all in order to ensure that every member feels empowered, valued, and respected for their contributions to the mission of the university. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is committed to providing all staff, faculty, and students equitable access to services, benefits, and opportunities.
