UNC World View joins our university colleagues, educators and partners around the state, nation and world to strongly condemn the ongoing acts of violence and systematic racism that Asians, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, and other people of color face.
UNC World View is committed to fulfilling the mission of serving K-12 and community college educators as together we prepare students to live and work in an interconnected world. We will continue to strive for equality and equity for every person.
The time is now to take action and walk in solidarity with people of color to create an environment whereby the personal rights, lives and dignity of each person is realized and respected. We at UNC World View have much work to do and will continue to be a space for learning, growth and community.
