UNC CH has a thriving program in Sexuality Studies. Not only are there many courses and teaching opportunities, there are many events that are typically open to the entire campus (students, staff and faculty). Visit the website to learn more details.
The University provides dental, group term life and accidental death and dismemberment insurance for domestic partners of faculty and staff. The major medical health plan does not allow employees to purchase coverage for their same sex spouse or partner. The benefits policy is controlled by the Office of State Personnel not by UNC-Chapel Hill Human Resources or the General Administration for the UNC system. Please contact the Office of State Personnel with specific questions. The LGBTQ Center, UNC-Chapel Hill's Human Resources Department, and General Administration continue to advocate for full benefits equity with respect to major medical health insurance benefits and leave policies.
To elect coverage for a same sex spouse or partner during annual enrollment, employees must complete an “Affidavit of Domestic Partnership” form and the corresponding enrollment form(s) for the plan you want to enroll in. Send all forms to Benefits Services. Visit the Human Resources website for more details about the policies and to find the current forms.
