THE EQUAL OPPORTUNITY INSTITUTE AT NC STATE
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.
“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.
