Diversity may be defined as "otherness" or those human qualities that are different from our own and outside the groups to which we belong, yet are present in other individuals and groups. Dimensions of diversity may include, but are not limited to, age, ethnicity, gender, physical abilities/qualities, race, color, sexual orientation, educational background, geographic locations, income, marital status, military experience, parental status, religious beliefs, and work experience.
The University of Nebraska at Kearney is committed to the academic value of a diverse university community. We believe a quality university experience must provide opportunities for contact with the broadest possible range of people and cultures.
The Diversity Guide identifies resource information for support, education or opportunities for involvement. The information is provided for prospective and current students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of the university. The database contains campus and local activities, organizations, programs, resources, and university curriculum relating to areas of diversity identified in the UNK Nondiscrimination Policy: race, age, color, disability, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin, marital status, and veteran status.
