Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion

We recognize that a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for our participants enriches our THRIVE Program by building creative bridges connecting Veterans and first responders together in our program. Our leadership, administrative staff, clinical team, and senior advisors all work together to build a creative team that fosters innovative clinical care and enhances our clinical research mission. We are passionate about creating and sustaining a diverse and inclusive environment for everyone. It is therefore our policy not to discriminate on the basis of age, color, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation or Active Duty or Veteran status.

We are also committed to providing a safe environment for our team and for our campus community. Many members of our team have completed several training opportunities, including:

  1. HAVEN (Helping Advocates for Ending Violence Now): in collaboration between the Equal Opportunity and Compliance office, the Carolina Women’s Center, and Student Wellness.
  2. Green Zone Training: to train members of the Carolina community to know more about the issues and concerns faced by military-affiliated students and to identify individuals who are available to assist this population
  3. Safe Zone: A program designed to create a network of allies for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, and allied (LGBTQIA+) students.
