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.

International Education Week, a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education, is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. It is designed to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and share experiences in the United States.

IPC and other departments are organizing a variety of events, activities, and workshops during this week. For a complete schedule and event descriptions, please visit our website or click here for the poster: http://www.uncg.edu/ipg/IEWposter2014FINAL.pdf
