Our Statement on Diversity

CAPS aspires to create a safe, affirming, accepting and welcoming environment that embraces human diversity. We understand diversity to include, but not be limited to: race, ethnicity, language, nationality, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, ability, and socioeconomic status. We are committed to serving students and the campus community at UNC Charlotte by striving for social justice through increasing awareness of the effects of oppression, prejudice, and discrimination.
