College Statement on University City Shooting and Protests

In light of the recent tragedies and events in the Charlotte region and elsewhere, the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences reaffirms our commitment to respect, safety, diversity, inclusion and acceptance for all of our stakeholders.

As the largest and most diverse college at UNC Charlotte, the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences stands committed to serving, welcoming, and providing opportunities and access to all faculty, staff and students in our university community and beyond.  More importantly, as a community, the College strives to behave in ways that respect people regardless of their differences and to reject behaviors that are exclusionary, disrespectful, or harmful of these differences. Our first priority is to ensure the safety and well-being of all members of the CLAS campus community.
