Give to Diversity & Inclusion
Thank you for your interest in supporting the University Office for Diversity & Inclusion. Our work is essential to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all members of the UNC community—faculty, staff, students, and communities, local and beyond. We provide opportunities for individuals to explore, learn, and lead through experiential activities, education, and dialogue focused on diversity, equity and inclusion.
All gifts are appreciated and welcome. Following are our current priorities:
The University Office for Diversity and Inclusion
The University Office for Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) builds understanding across differences, creates conditions to ensure the equitable educational and social benefits of diversity, and cultivates a welcoming and supportive environment for undergraduate students, graduate and professional students, faculty, and staff, positioning them to reach their greatest potential.
Project Uplift and Recruitment Programs
Carolina’s signature program, Project Uplift, hosts high-achieving rising high school juniors from historically underserved populations. Students spend two days on campus, experiencing collegiate academics and activities. Particularly high-achieving Project Uplift recipients are invited to participate in Uplift PLUS, a five-week summer residential program. Rising high school juniors from rural communities can participate in NC Renaissance, a four-day enrichment program on campus.
Project Uplift 50 Endowment Fund
Established in 1969, Project Uplift provides a two-day on-campus experience for underrepresented rising high school seniors. A gift to the Project Uplift 50 Endowment will help sustain the program and increase access to higher education for all outstanding high school students, especially those from historically underserved populations.
