At our core, UNE is a student-centered institution dedicated to fostering a community in which all members feel a true sense of belonging and where their identities are affirmed and honored. By celebrating the diversity of our backgrounds, examining our lived experiences, and sharing our perspectives, we seek to cultivate a campus culture of inclusion and equity that respects the contributions we all make toward an enriching campus experience.
Associate provost for Community, Equity, and Diversity Chris Hunt, Ed.D., discusses opportunities for members of the UNE community to engage around issues of DEI.
Words can only get us so far — living our values requires action. There are many ways at UNE to actively advance the ideals of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Participate in an existing student organization or one of several working groups and committees. Attend an event, like the Forums on Fridays. Or, reach out to the Office of Community, Equity, and Diversity to share your ideas for a next step in our community conversation.
The Office of Community, Equity, and Diversity
The Office of Community, Equity, and Diversity engages and collaborates with students, faculty, and professional staff to foster inclusivity and embrace equity and diversity across UNE’s campuses, in its curriculum, through professional development, and in its recruitment and retention practices. Additional offices and committees across the University support this work.
