Student Diversity Resources
Whether through clubs and organizations or volunteer and activism opportunities, Queens offers an abundance of experiences for students to share and learn from each other and the world around them. Community involvement beyond campus provides a foundation for civic life, as well as invaluable encounters that will remain with students long after they graduate. If a student finds that a group or effort they’re interested in does not exist at Queens, they are encouraged to fill that void to create more opportunities for learning and understanding.
Queens’ motto, “Not to be served, but to serve,” weaves into what we do, where we go and how we learn on a daily basis. As active citizens in the Charlotte community and beyond, our students, faculty and staff take advantage of the many opportunities Queens offers to better our world. Find out more here.
