Diversity Resources

NC State provides a wealth of resources for faculty, staff and students.

For Students

The focus of NC State’s student diversity efforts in the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED) is to provide leadership in the university’s efforts to coordinate, implement and facilitate a comprehensive array of educational and cultural programs to serve our diverse student body. In addition, student diversity efforts promote cultural competence, cultural interaction as well as an understanding of and appreciation for diversity throughout the entire university community. Student diversity activities include providing consultation on student recruitment, retention and success as well as reviewing and recommending changes to university policies, procedures and regulations to enhance inclusion and promote diversity in the student population.

For Staff

NC State staff are the backbone of the university, supporting vital services and functions including laboratory preparation, student advisement, facilities maintenance and administrative processes. The Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity supports several initiatives and programs aimed to support and engage diverse staff.
