The Tapestry of Diverse Talents, a program of the Student Activities Office, is a pictorial mosaic that recognizes students, faculty, staff, and alumni for the contributions to diversity they bring to North Dakota State University. Each year individuals are inducted into the Tapestry during a ceremony. Inductees contribute to supporting and advocating for diversity on the basis of age, color, gender expression/identity, mental and physical ability, race, socioeconomic status, religion, sex, sexual orientation, and veteran status of the University community. The Tapestry program kindles the spirit of diversity that is integral to the NDSU community.
The Tapestry recognizes NDSU students, faculty, staff, and alumni for their accomplishments regarding cultural pluralism. Therefore, nominees should be persons who:
- Demonstrate their commitment to supporting and advocating for diversity and multiculturalism wherein their impact and level of influence is felt locally, regionally, nationally, or internationally;
- Show a consistent pattern of going above and beyond professional motivation (i.e. NDSU position) or the requirements of a course of study by taking the personal initiative to create an inclusive and welcoming environment; and
- Promote, facilitate, and advocate for social engagement among people from at least one of the following categories: age, color, gender expression/identity, mental and physical ability, race, socioeconomic status, religion, sex, sexual orientation, and veteran status.
