Visualizing Integration I


Previously we have described the city of Greensboro as a place with enough racial and ethnic diversity to be considered a multicultural environment. Furthermore, part of the agents observed in this research are students of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG).

According to the data provided by CollegeData and CollegePortraits  , UNCG is a public university with 15,173 undergraduate students -9,957 (65.6%) women and 5,216 (34.4%) men- and 3,474 graduate students with a remarkable ethnic diversity (see Table 1). Besides that, 2.8% of UNCG students are international students from 55 different countries worldwide.

Photographic exploration

Our visual ethnography continues in the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Like Downtown, UNCG is not black or white. It is a multicultural environment, a place for intercultural exchange and heterogeneity.
