The UNC Charlotte College of Education Diversity Initiatives

College of Education Diversity Commitment

The College of Education at UNC Charlotte is committed to social justice and respect for all individuals, and it seeks to create a culture of inclusion that actively supports all who live, work, and serve in a diverse nation and world.  Attaining justice and respect involves all members of our community in recognizing that multi-dimensional diversity contributes to the College’s learning environments, thereby enriching the community and improving opportunities for human understanding.  While the term “diversity” is often used to refer to differences, the College’s intention is for inclusiveness, an inclusiveness of individuals who are diverse in ability/disability, age, economic status, ethnicity, gender, language, national origin, race, religion, and sexual orientation.  Therefore, the College aspires to become a more diverse community in order to extend its enriching benefits to all participants.  An essential feature of our community is an environment that supports exploration, learning, and work free from bias and harassment, thereby improving the growth and development of each member of the community.
