Race Against Isms 5K with TIAA

We’ve all been affected in one way or another by “isms.” Racism, sexism, classism, ableism—the list goes on. As part of TIAA’s Be the Change initiative, UNC Charlotte and TIAA have partnered to host a race to encourage a unified stand against the “isms” holding the world back. And that’s a race we want to win.

When you sign up, you’ll have the opportunity to nominate a student for one of five $1,000 TIAA Race Against Isms Scholarships. We’re looking for difference makers who demonstrate leadership and progress in the space of “isms” or social justice. All UNC Charlotte students are eligible to apply. Participation in 5K  or 1 mile race is not required. Race registration is FREE for students, faculty, and staff, and each participant will receive a moisture-wicking shirt with their race packet (while supplies last). Deadline for the scholarship application is September 14, 2022.
