Diversity

Find strength in community.

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

We pride ourselves on being one of the most diverse public universities in North Carolina.  Having a diverse student body gives our students the opportunity to learn from other students from different backgrounds and cultures, with different perspectives, to create a holistic and informed academic and social experience.  

  • 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 47 U.S. states and 100+ countries, and we are one of the most diverse college campuses in North Carolina, with 37% of our students coming from underrepresented and underserved backgrounds.
  • 2,000 international students represent different ethnicities

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.
