Commitment to an Inclusive Research Enterprise

The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research (OVCR) is dedicated to building and supporting a diverse, inclusive, and welcoming research culture at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. We seek to ensure that our research enterprise serves all individuals across diverse backgrounds, life experiences, and political viewpoints and represents the geographical diversity of North Carolina.

The OVCR supports UNC-Chapel Hill’s diversity and inclusion mission statement, “to build understanding across differences, create conditions to ensure the equitable educational and social benefits of diversity, and cultivate a welcoming and supportive environment…”

And in alignment with Carolina’s community standards, we’re making our research, programs, resources, and training opportunities equitable, inclusive, and accessible throughout UNC-Chapel Hill, the communities we serve, and the broader research community.
