About the Department
The Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED) is committed to fostering an inclusive, accessible, and diverse intellectual and cultural campus experience at North Carolina State University (NC State). The OIED facilitates and supports efforts to ensure equity and equal opportunity, offers diversity education and training, and promotes inclusive excellence among students, faculty, and staff. There are four OIED units: Campus Community Centers; Inclusive Excellence and Strategic Practice; Equal Opportunity and Equity; and Bias Impact Response. These units collaborate to ensure accountability to compliance, policy, and community care standards. They also monitor and respond to campus climate needs, facilitate equity and inclusion assessment, education, and training, and support underrepresented and marginalized identity groups within the NC State community.
The Campus Community Centers are a unit within the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity. The Campus Community Centers are comprised of the African American Cultural Center, GLBT Center, Multicultural Student Affairs, and the Women’s Center. Our community efforts play a role in increasing the participation, retention, and success of students, faculty, and staff from historically underrepresented groups. They ensure that NC State is an equitable and inclusive environment, one that is free from prohibited discrimination and harassment. Together, creating a community that provides a unified, campus-wide approach ensures that students, faculty, and staff learn and work within a campus defined by the best practices in equity, diversity, and inclusion.
The GLBT Center’s mission is to engage, develop, and empower members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community and their allies. The Center’s vision is of a campus where students, staff, faculty, and alumni feel empowered and proud of all the identities that they hold and share responsibility to increase diversity & inclusion. In order to fulfill that mission, the Center helps students connect to support networks, offers identity-based and health-related information & resources. Programmatically the center provides professional and leadership development opportunities and hosts educational events and programs. Additionally, center staff support students individually and collectively on issues related to personal identity, academic success, and refer students to resources on campus and in the local community. The GLBT Center strives to increase the NC State campus community’s understanding of diversity by working collaboratively to raise awareness, promote respect, and create a culture of equity, inclusion and social justice.
The GLBT Center Director reports to the Senior Director of the Campus Community Centers, who reports to the Vice Provost for Institutional Equity and Diversity and Chief Diversity Officer, a member of the Chancellor’s Cabinet.
