About University of North Carolina School of The Arts

The University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) is committed to deeply embedding equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging into our values and actions to transform our campus into a welcoming and inclusive community for everyone. Our leadership will implement intentional and strategic efforts to tackle the systemic problems of racism and inequity in society, our institution, and the entertainment industry. We strive to create a safe environment, one that allows people from all walks of life to thrive. Doing so demands that we commit to an explicit and continual process of identifying and dismantling systems and practices of bias, exclusion, and oppression. Education and art-making can be transformational forces for change and we are working so that change leads toward justice.

Located in Winston Salem, UNCSA is an arts conservatory and one of the 17 constituent institutions of the University of North Carolina system.
