What is the UNITE Cohort Program? 

The UNITE Cohort program was created to allow undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to begin or continue conversations in relation to inclusion across a broad range of identities. Specifically, UNITE highlights UNC's diverse community through the following programs: Equity & Inclusion Basics, DREAMer Zone, Vet Zone, Disability Awareness, Straight Facts about LGBTQ+ Life, Sexism 101.

Students accomplish the UNITE program by registering for the cohort and then attending the different educational trainings through the Fall 2018-Spring 2019 academic semesters. Students who complete the full series over the academic year will be invited to an end of year celebration and call to action.

UNITE Cohort Learning Outcomes

  • Demonstrate awareness of the issues and concerns of UNC’s diverse community.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of policies, laws, and practices that affect UNC’s diverse community.
  • Recognize and articulate identities you hold.
  • Identify and articulate privilege identities.
  • Recognize where to direct individuals for more resources regarding their identities.
  • Identify personal actions to support yourself as well as marginalized communities.

Included Trainings

(2 hours)

Presenters: Disability Support Services (DSS) Staff

Why are individuals with disabilities often forgotten in conversations about diversity and inclusion? What does social justice mean for a college student with a disability? What does Disability Support Services really do besides proctoring exams? We will discuss the resources provided for students, student demographics, observed trends, and the changing language in regard to disability.

Can I register to be part of the Cohort at any time?

Yes! Students may join the Cohort at anytime. We do however, encourage you to look at the schedule of educational trainings below to plan accordingly to complete with your cohort.
