Diversity Week

Diversity Week is a Carolina tradition that celebrates the identities of the members of the Carolina community. Through various events and social media campaigns, we seek to highlight the unique experiences and stories of UofSC students, faculty, and staff.

During this week, we want every member of our community to reflect and celebrate all of the things that make our university community diverse and inclusive.

ThisIsUSC is a storytelling event that highlights the diversity of backgrounds and experiences in the Carolina community. By sharing individual stories, speakers provide insight on how their identity has shaped different experiences in their life.  


The goal of ThisIsUSC is to celebrate the unique stories of members of our campus and surrounding communities, while also exposing attendees to life experiences that they may not have seen or heard of before. The exercise of storytelling allows people to gain insight on what makes people who they are -- providing people the opportunity people to hear the background stories that formed their views.  


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
