OIED Announces Signature Events for 2021-22

Ibram X. Kendi speaks at NC State in January, 2020

Despite an uncertain 2020-21, the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity plans a full slate of signature events for 2021-22. By “signature events,” we mean events to which we invite the entire campus community. We hope to bring you the events you’ve attended and enjoyed in years past. We know, however, that plans at this time are subject to change. We include below our tentative list for fall semester below, but please check our website’s Signature Events page for the most up-to-date information as the year unfolds. We hope to connect with you in person or virtually, whichever the case may be.
