Diversity Significantly enhances the university's intellectual climate, creativity and worldview, and we are committed to promoting understanding and appreciation for all individuals and groups. The University seeks a positive climate for diversity and inclusion to allow for self-reflection and the exploration of differences in a safe and nurturing environment. UNG also fosters a climate where equity and equality are valued and supported.

Ultimately, UNG's commitment to diversity is a commitment to educational excellence and to a more just and vibrant community.
