Diversity and inclusion are central to the mission and pursuit of excellence across the University of Nebraska, including at UNO. Each person has something to gain from and offer to our communities of learning, discovery and outreach. All our welcome in our system.
President Hank Bounds, Ph.D., along with the chancellor of each University of Nebraska institution recently partnered to create a video that explained what diversity and inclusion can do for our campuses.
“We’re stronger when we live and work and study alongside people who don’t look like us, don’t think like us and don’t come from the same place as us,” Bounds said. “Each of us has a different story and we can each learn something from each other.”
“In a culture of inclusion, all ideas can be freely and respectfully shared,” Chancellor Jeffrey P. Gold, M.D., added. “We can argue, discuss, reflect, change our minds or agree to disagree. This is the kind of culture we are dedicated to here at UNO and at the Med Center.”
