Diversity and Inclusion

The Cognitive Psychology Program at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill is strongly committed to promoting diversity with respect to culture, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, age, among others. We are committed to maintaining a diverse student population and minority students are especially encouraged to apply for our doctoral program. Minority students who gain admission to our program in Cognitive Psychology are frequently competitive for prestigious national and university fellowships.

The Department of Psychology and Neuroscience also participates in the National Science Foundation funded Atlantic Coast Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences Alliance (AC-SBE Alliance) which is administered through the UNC Alliances for Graduate Education and Professoriate (AGEP). The goal of these organizations is to increase the number of underrepresented minority students receiving Ph.D.s in the social, behavioral, and economic sciences disciplines.

We support the University’s core values encouraging diversity and equal educational and employment opportunities throughout our community. These values are articulated in the UNC Non-Discrimination Policy and by the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs.
