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.

"There are real measurable impacts when an organization commits to being inclusive. Team performance improves dramatically when everyone on the team feels included. In fact, researchers found that the most inclusive teams perform up to 60% better. That's critical to keep in mind when it comes to increasing our effectiveness and positivity as a university."
