North Dakota State University’s core values reflect our commitment to engaging diversity in its many manifestations; academic, intellectual, cultural, ideological, personal, ethnic, experiential, and others. Not only do our values lead us to strive to be a place in which differences co-exist and mutually inform our growth into the future; but as a Bison family, we are committed to being a place in which all truly belong together. This collective project to build a culture of universal belonging is the work of inclusion.
The Advancing Inclusion Award is given annually to an NDSU department, committee, group, or unit that has worked collaboratively to promote an inclusive culture by enhancing or contributing to the overall environment of the community or university. The award recognizes the implementation of practices, programs, procedures, and similar actionable processes which result in a mutually identified sense of belonging and thriving for all people across any number of axes of diversity including: race, class, sex, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, national origin, religion, age, and veteran status among others.
All NDSU departments, committees, student groups, units, etc., are eligible for this nomination.
Nominations may be made by any student, staff, faculty, or administrator and will be reviewed by members of the Advancing Inclusion Selection Committee. Nominations are due by 12:00 p.m. Friday, April 17, 2020.
