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:

Project Uplift and Uplift Plus

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.




Students in the Carolina Global Launch program walk through the streets of Madrid, Spain, on September 23, 2022, prior to the start of their fall semester classes at Universidad de Granada in Granada, Spain. Incoming UNC students who elect to participate in the Carolina Global Launch program study abroad at one of several international destinations during the fall semester and, upon completion of their coursework, are guaranteed enrollment at Carolina in the spring with all courses being credited towards their eventual UNC degree. The orientation sessions and activities for students who chose Spain included field trips to numerous historical landmarks and museums, city-wide bicycle tours, the sampling of local cuisines and immersion in various cultural activities such as flamenco dancing while staying with a host family in Granada.

The Women of Worth Initiative (W) creates and sustains a community for women who identify as members of underrepresented racial and ethnic populations in order to promote professional development, mentorship, self-worth, and a sense of belonging for faculty, staff, and students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

The mission is supported through an annual conference and supplementary programs that foster on-going community engagement and opportunities to unite and strengthen networks.
