Inclusion and Diversity at UNCP

At UNC Pembroke, diversity and inclusion has long been part of the university's mission of service. Established in 1887 to provide educational opportunity to a group that had been previously denied that right, UNCP has a history from its beginning of being an agent for social change, equity and inclusion. Today, UNCP is proudly one of the most ethnically diverse universities in the South and strives daily to provide a work and learning environment where all faculty, staff and students feel welcome and supported. 

To work toward reaching inclusive excellence, in 2020, Chancellor Robin Gary Cummings established the Inclusion and Diversity Council at UNC Pembroke. The Council, with a broad campus representation, is charged with the development of an inclusion policy for our campus, benchmarking with peers, developing key priorities and metrics using the data and input we have received, supporting the work of other organizations on campus with inclusion and diversity responsibilities, and collaboratively implementing programs to strengthen our campus community.
