Cultural/Resource Centers

We have many cultural and resource centers on campus for all of our students. Below are some of the cultural/resource offices and a brief description of what each office does. Each office provides support and encouragement to students and helps them to be successful academically and socially.

The Center for International Education provides academic, cultural and educational support for international and American students and advocates for a global perspective on the UNC campus. Our programs work individually but constantly collaborate to provide the services necessary to support both international students and scholars as well as the growing numbers of UNC students and faculty involved in education abroad. Our goals and mission are identical: to enrich the education of all UNC students by providing an enhanced awareness of our interconnected world.

We greatly value and work to build mutual respect, student advocacy, and opportunity for students with disabilities while maintaining the integrity of the University's academic standards.
