Employee Resource Groups

The University of South Carolina Upstate has relaunched a number of employee resource groups (ERGs) as part of its ongoing effort to build and maintain an inclusive and welcoming campus environment. Tenets of our Impact AgendaWellness, Equity and Civilityare supported by ERGs.

The employee resource groups were created as a direct result of Upstate’s commitment to enhancing the contributions of and supporting historically underrepresented populations, which is one of the three core strategies in the university’s Equity and Inclusion Blueprint.

Each group meets regularly to share information, offer support, advocate for policy changes, and hold social events. So far, the following employee resource groups have relaunched:

Past Employee Resource Groups: Young Professionals ERG; Upstate Adjunct Faculty ERG; Gardeners ERG; and, Upstate Collective ERG.
