Diverse group of students gathered at SAS hall


The Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity works toward creating an NC State where everyone is welcome.

Diversity and inclusion is everyone’s responsibility, but the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED) spearheads the effort. OIED seeks to create an NC State experience where everyone, regardless of beliefs, background, orientation or ability, feels at home as part of the Wolfpack.

At OIED, we strive to:

  • Ensure equity and opportunity across campus
  • Increase awareness of diversity issues through education
  • Strengthen relationships across diverse groups
  • Promote cultural competency development
  • Foster a welcoming and respectful campus
  • Provide services and outreach to the campus and community
  • Adhere to accountability and compliance standards
  • Prepare students, faculty and staff for local, state, national and global collaboration
