Statement of Support for our BIPOC Colleagues

As public facing institutions of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the Ackland Art Museum, Morehead Planetarium and Science Center, and North Carolina Botanical Garden believe it is essential to create inclusive environments and empower individuals who have unique perspectives. By embracing our collective similarities and differences, we enrich the quality and scope of our service to North Carolina and beyond. We are heartbroken that so many Black, Indigenous and Persons of Color at UNC are undervalued. As your friends, peers and colleagues, we want you to know that we reaffirm our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion and will continue to work to create a fair, equitable and just society.
