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.
The office provides leadership and coordination around diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives, working to eliminate barriers to success for all members of our community — especially for historically underrepresented individuals — and ensuring that diversity, equity, and inclusion are considered in every institutional decision.
UNE’s work on DEI issues extends beyond the Office of Community, Equity, and Diversity. It is the result of collaboration among members of a wide array of constituencies across the University, including institutional offices and various university committees.

The Community, Equity, and Diversity Library Resource Initiative (CEDLRI) is a crowdsourced community resource that provides the UNE community with resources that inform and inspire action to support inclusive campuses and extended learning sites. We believe in our collective responsibility to study and celebrate the diverse backgrounds and experiences of UNE students, faculty, and professional staff in order to foster a sense of belonging for all members of our community.
