Nebraska Community of Learners — Understanding Diversity through Education

A community of learners dedicated to understanding diversity through education. The series of virtual conversations are intended to help students, faculty, staff, alum and the greater community understand and embrace the opportunities we have to create a greater sense of inclusion for all. #NCLUDE is a space to talk candidly about inclusive excellence being a part of our everyday interactions.

Mission

To promote inclusive excellence leveraging the voices, expertise, skills and experiences of each member, supporting one another through conversation. To facilitate mindfulness and a cognitive shift toward inclusion.

Vision

To be a supportive inclusive community that is strengthened by differences, innovation, risk-taking and conversation.

We strive to be an organic group and encourage members to participate and contribute by providing educational and informational resources. The objective is to grow together, by sharing our experiences and expertise on inclusive practices.

How It Works

#NCLUDE is an opportunity for participants to contribute to ongoing resources related to inclusive excellence and to connect the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to the expanded community. Each session will bring in guest presenters, topic facilitators and provide workshops to promote dialogue that highlights the importance and the power of inclusion. We are looking to engage, learn and grow together.
