Diversity Education Week 2017


We think and do best together when we embrace diverse people and perspectives. To successfully solve the grand challenges in our world, we must ensure that our engagement builds on the accessibility and inclusion that furthers innovation and excellence at NC State.

NC State's Annual Diversity Education Week takes place October 22- 28, 2017. All Students, faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to participate in the week of dialogue, events, programs and workshops.

By utilizing the strengths of our diverse student body, Diversity Education Week (DEW) equips NC State students, faculty and staff with 21st century skills. Through education and engagement, DEW promotes awareness and understanding of diverse cultures and fosters intercultural understanding. DEW advances learning and scholarship, builds understanding and respect among different peoples and enhances constructive leadership and dialogue in our local and global communities.

Participants gain information and experience during the week through engaging opportunities, such as lectures, workshops, panel and group discussions, film, food, music, dance and more.
