The Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED) is committed to fostering an inclusive, accessible, and diverse intellectual and cultural campus experience at North Carolina State University (NC State). The OIED facilitates and supports efforts to ensure equity and equal opportunity, offers diversity education and training, and promotes inclusive excellence among students, faculty, and staff. There are four OIED units: Campus Community Centers; Inclusive Excellence and Strategic Practice; Equal Opportunity and Equity; and Bias Impact Response. These units collaborate to ensure accountability to compliance, policy, and community care standards. They also monitor and respond to campus climate needs, facilitate equity and inclusion assessment, education, and training, and support underrepresented and marginalized identity groups within the NC State community.
OIED employs student workers in our main office to help with the overall design and communication needs of the department. Currently, all 2023/2024 positions are filled. Please check back closer to the end of the semester for next years’ openings.
Campus Community Centers
The Campus Community Centers are a unit within the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity. The Campus Community Centers are comprised of the African American Cultural Center, GLBT Center, Multicultural Student Affairs, and the Women’s Center. These centers work to cultivate a sense of community, belonging, and affirmation. We provide spaces of support, leadership development, and education for students at NC State University. Recognizing intersectional gaps, our spaces center the voices of historically marginalized and underserved students, ensuring that all students know that they can live, learn, and grow at NC State University. While our work is done in direct service to undergraduate and graduate students, the four Centers also provide resources and support to the entire campus community to expand knowledge, while fostering a welcoming climate.
We do this work by:
- affirming, empowering, and amplifying the voices of our communities
- fostering critical thinking and discourse, cultural humility, and skill development
- serving as a resource, support, and connection point for students
- identifying and advocating for resources and systemic change to advance equity, access, and inclusion within the campus community
- cultivating opportunities for joy, celebration, creation, and imagination
