Diversity is critical to NC State’s mission. New perspectives deepen our understanding, strengthen our community and propel our innovation.

Diversity Is Essential

NC State values diversity. Not only do we all benefit from multiple viewpoints, experiences and perspectives, diversity is critical to our academic mission. Without it, our students simply could not succeed in today’s competitive global marketplace — let alone become conscientious global citizens.

Everyone who comes to NC State enriches us through their varied knowledge and backgrounds. And we expect everyone to give of their talents, skills, time and effort to make NC State an environment of inclusive excellence for all.
