Overview of the UNC Charlotte Plan for Campus Diversity, Access and Inclusion.

The goal of quality education for all at UNC Charlotte is the foundation for our Diversity Plan.  At its fullest potential, higher education allows students to interact with people from different backgrounds and to engage a range of ideas and perspectives.  This educational experience cultivates the skills that graduates will need to function adeptly in a global society.  

As North Carolina and the Charlotte region undergo rapid population growth and demographic change, UNC Charlotte must respond to the needs of a more diverse student population. It is imperative that the University prepare its students to become leaders and thriving citizens in a pluralistic and multicultural society. In adopting our Diversity Plan, we affirm that:


    • We believe that a diverse faculty, staff and student body are critical in advancing teaching, scholarship, and community engagement at UNC Charlotte.
    • We are committed to enhancing opportunities for living, working and learning in a diverse environment
    • We are committed to educating our students to interact effectively and respectfully in the global community. 

      The Plan identifies components of a diverse campus community and outlines steps toward building an inclusive environment that promotes the success of all students, faculty, and staff. It is a living document that affirms our institutional values and is designed to offer guidance to University departments and units for achieving the University goals for diversity.  The seven broad objectives of the Diversity Plan are:

      1: Promote a broad understanding of goals for diversity, access, and inclusion for the University through active outreach to the campus community.

      2: Recruit and graduate a diverse student body that reflects community diversity and addresses the state’s need to increase access to higher education for historically underrepresented and economically disadvantaged students.

      3: Increase the recruitment of underrepresented faculty and advance their progression through the faculty ranks.

                  4: Increase the representation of staff from underrepresented groups.

      5: Ensure the presence of institutional environments and course development that enhance learning and appreciation for the full range of diversity.

      6: Develop external relationships with the community to enhance diversity on and off campus.

                  7: Ensure the Success of the Plan through Assessment, Accountability, and Recognition.
