OFFICE FOR INSTITUTIONAL EQUITY AND DIVERSITY OUTREACH AND EDUCATION
WELCOME TO OIED OUTREACH AND EDUCATION
The Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED) is NC State University’s home for diversity and equity training, programs and events at NC State. However, we do not do our work alone. Diversity professionals and practitioners in colleges and divisions across NC State share the work of creating, maintaining and enhancing diversity and equity in our community. On this website, we provide information and registration for training and education programs offered by OIED as well as links to programs offered by other groups on campus. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Beverly Jones Williams, OIED’s director of outreach and education at 919-513-3836.
