Diversity at Northwestern

Northwestern University is committed to identifying and implementing ways to create and support a diverse and inclusive campus community. We strive for a community that fosters personal and intellectual growth by bringing together faculty, students, and staff from different backgrounds and perspectives to engage in a mutual exchange of ideas and experiences. The staffing infrastructure includes the below individuals, who comprise the Diversity Leaders Group.

Diversity Leaders Group:

Campus Groups

These are some of the many groups to create and sustain the type of learning and living community that we strive to be.

University Diversity Council: Comprised of faculty, students, staff, and alumni to identify efforts and strategies to move the University forward. Read more on the University Diversity Council webpage.

Diversity Leaders’ Group: Formed to strengthen a coordinated approach to addressing institutional issues of diversity and inclusion. 

Campus Inclusion and Community Task Force: Graduate and undergraduate students who assist with the planning, implementation, and evaluation of services and programs related to diversity and inclusion.

Bias Incident Response Team: A group of administrators committed to creating a proactive response to instances of hate and bias. When a student reports a bias/hate incident through Respect NU, one of the BIRT members will support the student, connect them with the appropriate resources, and follow-up with them until the situation has been resolved.
