Diversity in Psychology and Neuroscience
The Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill is strongly committed to promoting diversity, inclusion, and equity for people from underrepresented groups and those with minoritized identities, including across race, culture, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and age.
Our Departmental Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) Committee is made up of faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate and undergraduate students, and staff. We seek to create a welcoming, equitable, and inclusive environment that facilitates growth for all students, faculty, and staff. We are committed to supporting and promoting the safety, well-being, and success for all in our community. Learn more about our Committee and meet its members.
We are dedicated to the active recruitment of a diverse group of students and faculty. Our efforts to recruit a diverse student population include our Diversifying Psychology Weekend and Interview Weekend Minority Brunch.
Our faculty are also committed to exploring diversity in their research, including improving health outcomes for those from minoritized groups, understanding the process of racial bias, and exploring the differential impact of stigma and adversity on Black children.
We support the University’s core values encouraging diversity and equal educational and employment opportunities throughout our community. These values are articulated in the UNC Non-Discrimination Policy and by the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs.
