Initiatives + Events

Many of the initiative and events happening at UNC Charlotte are guided by the many stories and lived experiences of our campus and surrounding communities. These opportunities are designed to cultivate an extensive learning and working environment to raise awareness, encourage critical thinking, broaden understanding, and promote engagement at the local level and beyond. As part of this effort, departments and units across the campus have worked with us to centralize all of their offerings into what we now call our campus-wide DEI inventory.
