UNC sets the standard and models innovative strategies focused on the holistic growth, development, and life-long success of our students - this is how we define a Students First university.
Rowing, Not Drifting 2030 guides our direction and aspirations for the next decade of serving students and our community.

As you consider joining our community, it is important to know that UNC is dedicated to strengthening and advancing our collective work related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We develop and learn more together with a diverse team. To achieve this, diversity for us represents differing perspectives, thoughts, and experiences. We value the individuality of the human distinctions of our staff because these distinctions benefit students, our community, and each other. We expect members of our community to stretch their learning edges about race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, lifestyle, age, educational background, national origin, religion, or physical ability. This is a significant way to honor the intersectionality of our university community. We appreciate the diverse contributions every individual makes to the UNC community. When you join the UNC community, you can expect to be part of a growing inclusive, innovative, and equity-minded community that requires broad collaboration among faculty, staff, students, and community partners.
