At Carolina, diversity and inclusion are about building understanding across differences, creating conditions to ensure the equitable educational and social benefits of diversity and cultivating an inclusive and supportive environment for undergraduate, graduate and professional students, faculty and staff – where every person feels valued and has an opportunity to add value.
Numerous unique commencement celebrations took place this spring. Among them were Éxitos, the fifth annual Latinx recognition reception, hosted by the Carolina Latinx Collaborative and Diversity & Inclusion; and the inaugural Umoja event, honoring Black graduates and planned by the Black Student Movement and the Carolina Black Caucus.
The final Carolina Conversations of the academic year focused on the role of public universities.
Presented by the University Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the awards recognize work in advancing an inclusive climate at Carolina.
