Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

The College of Health and Human Services supports UNCW's commitment to diversity and inclusion. We are committed to providing our students, faculty and staff the opportunity to learn and work in an environment that is rich in academic pursuits, research and community outreach initiatives, philosophical perspectives and culture.

We believe that by cultivating an atmosphere of diversity and inclusion within the College, we better prepare our students for the diverse world that they will be called upon to serve in the health and human services.

When we embrace the socioeconomic, physical, cultural, racial and ethnic differences of our students, faculty and staff, we enrich the quality of everything we do, both within the CHHS and beyond.

To this end, the CHHS seeks to cultivate a welcoming and inclusive community through the endorsement of the UNCW Diversity and Inclusion Statement:

In the pursuit of excellence, the University of North Carolina Wilmington actively fosters, encourages, and promotes inclusiveness, mutual respect, acceptance and open-mindedness among students, faculty, staff, and the broader community. Diversity is an educational benefit that enhances the academic experience, and fosters a free exchange of ideas from multiple perspectives.

Diversity includes, but is not limited to race, sex, age, color, national origin (including ethnicity), creed, religion, disability, sexual orientation, political affiliation, veteran's status, gender, educational disadvantage, socioeconomic circumstances, language, and history of overcoming adversity.

UNCW is an equal employment opportunity/affirmative action employer.
