The Equal Opportunity Institute is an award-winning program that increases individual knowledge of equal opportunity issues in the workplace, and to help participants develop skills necessary to cope with diverse working and learning environments.

Welcome to our award-winning diversity and equity program.

The Equal Opportunity Institute is a program designed to increase individual knowledge of equal opportunity issues in the workplace, and to help participants develop skills necessary to cope with diverse working and learning environments.

Thank you for your interest in the Equal Opportunity Institute. During the 2019-20 academic year, EOI will not be offered so that we can work on enhancing the program for the campus community.

Many of our diversity and equity workshops will still be offered as stand-alone learning opportunities at no cost to NC State students, faculty and staff. We invite you to browse our offerings in Reporter.

Please direct questions to Erin Morant.

“What I liked most about the Institute is the opportunity to learn something that was informative and very useful, as well as the opportunity to meet so many diverse but well-respected people who wanted to expand on their knowledge of what is taking place in the world today.”

EOI is open to all students, faculty and staff at NC State, as well as outside participants. To find out more about the program, keep reading.

“What I liked most about EOI is the opportunity to meet university equal opportunity staff; the opportunity to interact directly and on the same level with students and professionals.”
