Diversity & Inclusion

Leadership Commitment to Diversity

The University of North Georgia prepares students to lead in a diverse and global society. Essential to this mission is an environment that is welcoming, respectful, and inclusive of individuals and groups from a range of social, economic, and cultural backgrounds - an environment that embraces varied perspectives, values, and unique experiences.

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.


The university is committed to strengthening relationships among all stakeholders so as to enhance educational experiences, collegiality, sensitivity, and generosity. UNG's diverse environment leverages the full potential of team members and creates a culture that unleashes value-driving insights and innovative problem-solving.


Because cultivating and nurturing diversity at UNG are central to our success, we strive to recruit and retain high-caliber faculty, staff, and students who possess inherent and acquired diversity traits. We recognize that it is equally important to develop employee cultural competencies and build skills to ensure an inclusive learning and work environment. Ultimately, UNG's commitment to diversity is a commitment to educational excellence and to a more just and vibrant community.
