Mission and Vision


An equitable and healthy community where all thrive.


Student Affairs fosters student success by cultivating belonging, engagement, well-being, and learning.



We practice civility, compassion, and care for others. We work together to create a sense of interconnectedness through relationships that uplift and respect the collective and individual Tar Heel.


We are dedicated to eliminating systemic injustices and amplifying practices that work to dismantle discrimination against all identities. The work of equity is never done, yet we remain steadfast toward creating a UNC community accessible for everyone.


We embolden community members to be honest, refine individual and clarify collective morals, and understand the influence of their actions on the greater community.

Holistic Development

We believe holistic development is essential to student success at the personal and group level in areas such as leadership, civic engagement, career readiness, innovation, and service learning, which are at the core of the UNC experience.


We engage principles of sustainability and thoughtful stewardship. We hold ourselves accountable for managing human, institutional, and natural resources in a responsible manner while operating strategically to achieve our goals.


We promote environments that elevate the well-being of individuals and community to support respectful choices and positive decision-making regarding life-long health and safety.
