EOC is part of the Division of Workforce Strategy, Equity, and Engagement at UNC-Chapel Hill.

The Division of Workforce Strategy, Equity, and Engagement was formed in 2014 to join together the central University offices that strive to make Carolina a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere — the Office of Human Resources (OHR), EOC, and the  University Office for Diversity and Inclusion (D&I). By bringing these three critical areas together in a single division, the University intends to significantly increase collaboration; create campus-wide opportunities for compliance training, engagement, and learning; and advance Carolina’s mission to provide a welcoming, equitable, and stimulating educational environment for all. These three offices work to implement strategies for supporting and enriching Carolina’s workforce, complying with Equal Opportunity/ADA laws, and enhancing inclusiveness across all parts of our campus. More information about the other offices within this Division follows below.

  • OHR:  OHR is the central office responsible for HR operations covering all non-faculty (SHRA and EHRA Non-Faculty) employees, including employment compliance, benefit administration, and compensation. OHR works in partnership with campus school/division HR offices to provide a variety of programs and services to support and develop employees, and ensure that human resources policies, practices, and procedures are fully and correctly implemented.
  • D&I:  D&I has primary responsibility for providing University-wide leadership on best practices and strategies to build and sustain an inclusive campus community. D&I promotes the principles of equity and inclusion in recruitment, through diversity education and functions, and development programming. D&I strives to position Carolina to fulfill its mission of educating a diverse student body with the added goal of aspiring to attract and retain faculty and staff reflective of our larger community while maintaining an unwavering commitment to excellence.
