The Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity welcomes applicants to the Equal Opportunity Institute for the 2016-17 academic year.

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.

EOI continues a tradition of proactively educating the campus community in the areas of equal opportunity and diversity and opens its doors to staff, faculty, students and members of the general public.

Now including more courses than ever before, EOI provides a wide range of interesting and thought-provoking workshops, each serving to improve participants’ knowledge and skills with the ultimate goal of enhancing the campus as a whole, making NC State an even better place to work and learn.

“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.”
