To Our University Community
The UNC Center for Faculty Excellence condemns the ongoing racism and acts of violence against Black people across our nation. We see the profound stress, grief, fear, sadness, anger, and frustration within our campus, our town, our state, and our country. We join the Carolina community in our commitment to support faculty and others on campus who are working tirelessly to bring healing, equity, and justice.
The CFE mission as UNC-Chapel Hill’s pan-university faculty development center is to enable faculty members in all disciplines to reach their goals in teaching, research, leadership, and mentoring throughout their careers. The CFE will continue to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in all of its faculty development efforts.
We strive to build community and to create an environment where faculty feel supported and valued. We are here for you. We are listening. We support you.
