The President's Council for Diversity, Inclusion and Respect developed a statement to be included in position announcements that demonstrates NDSU’s commitment to building a diverse faculty and staff. Diversity statements help translate our values and demonstrate that we are committed to an inclusive and respectful workplace. This statement is based on the values and goals of the university, is in alignment with the strategic plan, and can be included on all position announcements.
NDSU strives to be a community of belonging, recognizing unique differences as strengths of our university. We seek to recruit and retain a diverse workforce that supports a community in which diverse populations and perspectives will know and learn from one another. NDSU values candidates who are committed to our core values of respect, inclusivity, community, creativity, excellence, impact, innovation, integrity, resilience, responsiveness, and transformation. Successful candidates will be committed to and help advance our strategic goal to create and maintain an open and respectful environment to promote inclusivity and diversity as a cornerstone of education, research, and outreach.
