Equity and Inclusion

The Office of the Provost is committed to helping build a diverse, equitable, and truly inclusive environment for the entire Northwestern community so that we are all enabled to do our best work.


As a community we strive to make our campus diverse and inclusive along many dimensions. To attain this goal, we collaborate with key stakeholders within and outside of Northwestern, and partner with representatives from every unit who represent and understand the perspectives and values of our community members. We invite you to view our Diversity and Inclusion Timeline, which illustrates some of the programs and initiatives Northwestern has launched in the last two decades on our road to building an ever richer community.
