UNCW Psychology Statement on Diversity

The Psychology Department takes responsibility to engender a climate of 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.  We understand that these experiences promote not only the growth of individuals and our community, but also of the field of psychological science.

Diversity includes, but is not limited to race, sex, age, national origin (including ethnicity), language, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender, veteran’s status, socio-economic status, and history of overcoming adversity.
