NC State has the following goals for its participation in SEA Change:

  • Engage in a comprehensive and thoughtfully-designed self-assessment process that can be used as a benchmarking tool for periodic analysis;
  • Identify short- and long-term goals that will assist in sustainable and systemic progress toward a more diverse, equitable and inclusive NC State;
  • Implement an accountability structure, buttressed by SEA Change’s peer review process, to strengthen NC State’s efforts;
  • Deepen understanding of the critical need for diversity, equity and inclusion in achieving innovation, from an academic perspective;
  • Increase recruitment, retention and climate for faculty, staff and students in STEMM (and throughout the university).
