Faculty Diversity

Our vision is to increase faculty diversity and promote a hospitable climate that supports the success of all faculty at NC State

We catalyze and facilitate faculty efforts, provide programming with input from faculty, and serve as a clearing house for information about faculty diversity.

"We learn the most from those we have the least in common with. Diversity that arises from ethnic, cultural, socioeconomic, professional, and experiential differences forms fertile ground for innovation."

DeSimone and Ferrell, 2014, Science Translational Medicine
