President Aoun speaks out in support of diversity and inclusion

Fol­lowing the pas­sage of a con­tro­ver­sial new law last week in North Carolina—where North­eastern main­tains a regional campus—President Aoun issued a state­ment in strong sup­port of diver­sity and inclu­sion. The law pre­vents local com­mu­ni­ties in that state from passing ordi­nances that pro­tect the rights of gay, les­bian, and trans­gender people. “At North­eastern Uni­ver­sity we believe diver­sity is a strength to be cel­e­brated, not a source of divi­sion,” Aoun said.

Diversity and inclusion highlight discussion at academic plan town hall

On Tuesday, North­eastern stu­dents, fac­ulty, and staff at the latest aca­d­emic plan town hall meeting exam­ined and shared ideas around diver­sity and inclu­sion, one of the core themes being dis­cussed as part of the plan­ning process.

How can a campus be a model community?

Mem­bers of the North­eastern com­mu­nity gath­ered Thursday night to dis­cuss that ques­tion, par­tic­u­larly in terms of inclu­sion and diver­sity, as part of the “Con­flict. Civility. Respect. Peace. North­eastern Reflects” edu­ca­tional series.
