The Department of Exercise and Sports Science believes that diversity is crucial to our pursuit of academic excellence, and is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive community. We support UNC’s policy, which states that “the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is committed to equality of opportunity and pledges that it will not practice or permit discrimination in employment on the basis of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, veteran’s status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression”.

The Department of EXSS supports the University’s core values encouraging diversity and equal educational and employment opportunities throughout the University community. These values are articulated in the University’s non-discrimination policy and by the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs.
