North Carolina Diversity and Inclusion Partners is a consortium of public and private institutions of higher education in the State of North Carolina established to coordinate a statewide network among chief diversity officers, equal opportunity compliance officers, human resources practitioners, experts in multicultural affairs and others in professional roles related to equal opportunity/affirmative action, diversity and inclusion  in higher education.

The central aim of NC DIP is to unite chief diversity officers, diversity professionals, equal opportunity compliance officers, human resources practitioners, and other leaders in the push for change in higher education institutions. The NC DIP conference and spring networking event were created to provide an opportunity for practitioners and scholars to network and enhance learning on diversity, equity, and inclusion related topics.
