Office of Diversity and Inclusion

We are Nebraska. We believe in the power of every person.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln reflects a 150-year history as an institution of higher education. The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is committed to working with the campus and extended communities to position diversity, inclusion and equity as key pillars of our institution for the next 150 years.

We invite you on this journey.

About our Office

Created in 2018, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion reflects the efforts of our campus community to want to see a Nebraska where diversity and inclusion was a central aspect of the institution and that efforts across campus were coordinated, leveraged, and maximized. Read more about ODI.

Support Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion is an opportunity for us all. Creating an inclusive environment relies on each and all of us to do our part in recognizing and realizing the strength and power of diversity. The essence and heart of diversity and inclusion centers on the belief that everyone matters and the more we understand, the better we can create an environment that ignites innovation, leadership, and learning — the pillars of higher education. We invite you to support diversity and inclusion. Support may be in the form of mentorship, volunteerism, and/or financial commitment.
