As noted on the University’s diversity website, UNC Charlotte is 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.
In all that we do, Research and Economic Development is committed to cultivating and supporting an inclusive, diverse, and dynamic research and development environment. In all of our interactions with academic, industry, and government partners, we value the free and civil exchange of ideas and are guided by on overarching respect for human dignity. Our commitment to creating an affirming and supportive campus climate includes our partnership in the University’s Safe Zone Ally program.
