UNCG Chancellor Franklin D. Gilliam, Jr.
If you remember, not long after the killing of George Floyd, I wrote that structural and cultural racism needs to be confronted head-on for our society to move toward a more prosperous future for all. I argued that for society to change, it is a matter of the public’s willingness to change on matters of race, ethnicity, and the like. In particular, my response – my call to action – was simple but necessary: do something.

Statement on AAPI Community Support

We are very proud of our Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students at UNCG, and we join the many campuses around the country who are calling for an end to anti-AAPI bigotry. Hate, violence, harassment or discrimination of Asian students has no place at UNCG or anywhere. Our AAPI community is wonderfully diverse and deeply connected to all aspects of Spartan life.

Podcast: A Colored Girl Speaks

Dr. Andrea Hunter’s podcast, “A Colored Girl Speaks: Meditations on Race and Other Magical Things,” is a collection of personal essays on race, culture, and politics through the prism of identity, memory, and history – an intimate, and often painful, commentary on race in America, and the way forward.

UNCG Racial Equity graphic

As a minority-serving institution with a history as a women’s college, UNC Greensboro takes pride in providing access and opportunity to individuals from underrepresented and historically marginalized groups. 

We also recognize that we must do more to address issues of systemic racism and racial inequality on our campus and in our community. Racism has no place at UNCG. We are a leading public university in North Carolina serving a diverse student body, and it is our responsibility to take action to ensure equal opportunity in education and employment.

This website serves as a launching pad for Spartans, community members, and prospective students and families to learn more about our commitment to racial equity. Here, you’ll find statements from University leaders that address issues of racism and violence against communities of color, be it police violence or from the public at large. We’ve also compiled a list of resources and outlined ways that individuals can get involved with our ongoing efforts and engage each other in dialogue to create a more just community.


Dear Black Students at UNC Greensboro: We write to you all as Black faculty members that feel called to address the utter outrage, grief, and despair that is present in the ongoing police and state violence against Black people. We see you and we are with each and every one of you.” Read more…
