Diversity Council Information
NDSU is committed to diversity and pluralism grounded in visions of justice and a belief in the transforming power of education. Our commitment acknowledges a history of prejudice, discrimination, and exclusion in our society. We recognize that institutional and social changes necessitate intentional efforts to include all voices. We strive to provide a climate where there is an open and free exchange of ideas rooted in civility and a respect for the contributions of all those in our community.
What is the definition of Diversity?
Diversity encompasses the many different aspects that comprise our identity and contribute to our value and creativity as people. For the purposes of its work, the NDSU Diversity Council will focus primarily on those dimensions of diversity that have significant impact on individuals and groups in society: age, ethnicity, gender, mental and physical abilities, race, religion, and sexual orientation.
Our Vision Statement
As a gateway to lifelong education, NDSU is an inclusive community that thrives on diversity and actively embraces the unique contributions of all people.
