The Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED) is committed to fostering an inclusive, accessible, and diverse intellectual and cultural campus experience related to the mission of North Carolina State University (NC State). The OIED facilitates efforts to ensure equity and opportunity, increases awareness of diversity issues through education, and strengthens relationships across diverse groups. Through these efforts, the OIED promotes cultural competence development, thereby fostering a welcoming and respectful campus. By providing guidance, programming, and outreach to constituent groups and the community, and by adhering to accountability and compliance standards, the OIED prepares NC State students, faculty, and staff for local, state, national, and global collaboration.

Campus Community Centers is a unit within the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity. It is comprised of the African American Cultural Center, GLBT Center, Multicultural Student Affairs, and the Women's Center. Together, the centers work to foster a stronger sense of community on campus; empower, support, and advocate for underrepresented and marginalized students; educate the campus on social justice issues; and to help students successfully transition to college, persist, and graduate at higher rates.

The Women's Center Thanks to years of advocacy from students, faculty and staff across the institution, NC State founded the Women's Center in 1991. Since its founding, the Women's Center has worked to create culture change for gender and equity, affirm all identities, and cultivate connections and relationships across campus and in the community. Through examining links between systemic issues and institutional oppression, and creating spaces for dialogue intended to critique assumptions and beliefs, the Women's Center aims to transform social justice education into local and global action. The mission of the Women's Center is to build and create a community of authentic and engaged allies and leaders to pursue gender equity and social justice; enhancing the campus climate through education, advocacy, support, and leadership development.

The Women's Center directly serves all students at NC State while also serving as a resource, connection, and partner for faculty and staff at the institution. We take an intersectional approach to serving the campus community. Our practices are social constructivist in nature and rooted in social justice education and trauma-informed care. The Women's Center's Interpersonal Violence Response Coordinator reports to the Associate Director for Interpersonal Violence Services.
