Where All are Valued and Respected

UNK is an academic community that pledges to foster a climate of rigorous intellectual inquiry, unfettered exchange of ideas, and mutual respect—inside and outside the classroom—that is grounded in the principles of academic freedom and academic responsibility.

UNK is a place where people matter. We promote an inclusive environment that affords equitable access and opportunity to every individual.

"My parents understand English, but don't speak it. I'm a first-generation student so my parents do not know anything about college. They got to learn about college in the language that they speak. At first my mother was very scared to let me go to college. UNK said it was a family here…and that there are groups that will make it feel more like home. The decision to attend UNK was made for me, and now also for my parents. It's a big YES for us."
