Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at UNE

The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) 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.

UNE Values

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.
