Our Culture

Where Everyone Belongs

What makes UNC Kenan-Flagler special is ingrained in our very roots and so remains constant. Our core values — excellence, leadership, integrity, inclusion, community and teamwork — shape our extraordinarily collaborative and innovative culture.

Regardless of which program you attend — whether on campus or online — you are part of our close-knit culture. We cultivate an atmosphere where mutual respect is paramount and students, faculty and staff collaborate and support each other.

Cultivating a Diverse and Inclusive Community

Research shows that organizations operate at their fullest potential when people feel welcome, safe and appreciated. We believe the same holds true for our school.

At UNC Kenan-Flagler, the diversity of our community is one of our greatest assets and a critical component of our special culture. We believe that promoting a culture of tolerance, pluralism and acceptance is an ongoing activity — a constant work in progress. To that end, we continually revisit our policies and programs to ensure our reality is living up to our intentions.

We are committed to making sure that we hire people of different nationalities, races, abilities, socioeconomic status, age, genders, religion, heritage and sexual orientations.

But seeking diversity is only one part of the equation. Diversity is meaningless without inclusion. We also make sure to create a climate where everyone is made to feel truly welcome, safe and free to be themselves.

We know that when people feel comfortable to express themselves in an authentic way, they are more likely to flourish.
