Diversity

Find strength in community.

With a diverse mix of people, cultures, classes and ideas, our campus is a place of inclusion. 

Dating back to its beginning in 1946, our University has always been dedicated to promoting education to everyone, regardless of economic status. 

  • Each year, we enroll a diverse, competitive class of scholars to join our campus community of nearly 30,000 total students. 
  • Our students hail from all 50 U.S. states and 101 countries, and we are one of the most diverse college campuses in North Carolina, with 42% of our students coming from underrepresented and underserved backgrounds.  

We're proud of the many inclusion programs and services we offer to support students by fostering a fundamental understanding of diversity, unique learning styles, cultural differences and human relationships.
