On December 13, 2019, Chancellor Kevin M. Guskiewicz announcedOpens in new window that he was committed to raising and investing $5 million of non-state appropriated dollars over five years in initiatives to build the Carolina Community together. Diversity and inclusion are integrally connected to excellence in making new discoveries and in our service to the people of North Carolina and beyond.
– Chancellor Kevin M. Guskiewicz
To support the important work of the Build Our Community Together initiative, we created a Build Our Community Together fund. This unrestricted fund provides financial support to the people and programs on our campus that are dedicated to creating a more diverse, equitable and inclusive Carolina.
Examples of campus programs that have benefitted from this fund include Project Uplift; the UNC College of Arts & Sciences’ Southern Futures program; The Commission on History, Race and a Way Forward; and The Carolina Postdoctoral Program for Faculty Diversity Fellows.
