Coastal Carolina University embraces diversity and inclusion as core values essential to our mission to develop students who are knowledgeable in their chosen fields and prepared to be productive, responsible, healthy citizens with a global perspective.


We commit to increasing diversity, which is expressed in myriad forms, including race, ethnicity, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, sex, socioeconomic status, language, national origin, religion, age, (dis)ability status, political perspective, among others. 


We commit to creating and sustaining an inclusive learning, living and working environment where differences are welcomed and where all members of the Teal Nation feel that they are supported, respected, valued and heard. 

CCU continually strives to create a vibrant community that embeds these core values throughout the institution.

CCU’s Model of Diversity and Inclusion
  • Diversity and inclusion are necessary to achieve academic and institutional excellence.
  • The responsibility for diversity and inclusion falls on everyone within the community as opposed to one unit, department or office.
  • We seek to enhance equity and access for all, recognizing the experiences of historically underrepresented groups and marginalized groups in higher education.
Diversity Includes Disability

CCU is committed to diversity and inclusiveness with the goal of providing an accessible, usable, and welcoming environment for all. To learn more, visit Accessibility and Disability Services (ADS).
