Equity at NC State

To achieve its educational mission, NC State works to ensure an environment of mutual respect, one that is free from intolerance and one that offers equal opportunity for all. Every member of the university community shares the responsibility of addressing incidents of discrimination, bigotry, harassment, exclusion, abusive language or mistreatment of individuals or groups.

All members of the NC State community must work collectively to prevent discrimination by proactively implementing initiatives, training and policies to eliminate inequities and to resolve issues that may occur.

We are a resource for you if you have questions or concerns related to equal opportunity in campus. Collaborating with partners and informing the campus of federal, state and local laws and university policies, we work to keep NC State fully compliant.

At NC State, we work to ensure fairness and equity for all of our community members.
