Supporting Diversity Initiatives in the College
The College of Arts and Sciences is a place of diverse talents, backgrounds, interests and experiences. This diversity — among our 19,000-plus undergraduate and graduate students and nearly 1,600 faculty and staff — is one of our greatest strengths. We know that when people with diverse backgrounds and perspectives come together, new ways of thinking and seeing the world emerge.
Your support will help ensure a rising generation of students, educators and researchers of all races, ethnicities and cultures feel a sense of belonging while at Carolina.
