An important aspect of any environment, especially a college campus like UNO, is that everyone feels welcome.
UNO's Office of Diversity, Equity, Access and Inclusion works to develop, identify, and make available resources, information, and policies that encourage the PRESENCE of the varied campus constituencies that make UNO great, increasing the FAIR ACCESS of resources that UNO has to offer, and encourging FULL PARTICIPATION that fosters social belonging and respect.
