The UNC System Racial Equity Task Force is holding a series of Virtual Town Halls for faculty, staff and students to share their experiences, ideas and questions about race and equity at UNC-CH and in the UNC System. Sessions began this week and run through Oct. 29.
The task force will actively listen and use feedback from the sessions to inform its recommendations to the Board of Governors and UNC System Office. These town halls will provide a space for campus faculty, staff and students to share their input, with opportunities to do so anonymously. Space is limited.
Thank you for your interest in participating and sharing tangible steps you believe can be taken across the UNC System in pursuit of equity and understanding.

The UNC System Racial Equity Task Force was established to examine the legacy of race and racism in North Carolina’s public higher education system, how that history shapes and impacts the experiences of our students, faculty, staff and communities, and arrive at an actionable path forward that will build a culture of inclusion across our institutions. These town halls will build on our survey responses that students, faculty and staff shared in September, and will inform the Racial Equity Task Force’s recommendations that will be proposed in December. You can learn more about the Task Force’s efforts here, and you’re welcome to send us additional thoughts, concerns, and valuable input through our Share Your Ideas form
