Diversity and Inclusion

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion assist our campus in living and learning in a diverse world. We work towards creating a campus community that is inclusive and that all diverse worldviews belong in our Wesleyan community. This academic year we will focus on campus conversations about racism. If you are interested in having a Racism Workshop for class, training or group meeting contact the Office of Diversity and Inclusion @nwudivincl [at] nebrwesleyan.edu to set up a date and time. 

Land Honor and Acknowledgement

Here at Nebraska Wesleyan we acknowledge the truth that the land we work, learn and live on is the ancestral and forcibly ceded territory of indigenous nations.   

We acknowledge that the land and the natural resources on which these nations depended were and are inextricably linked to their identities, cultures and livelihoods as well as their physical and spiritual well-being.   

We honor vital ancestral knowledge and expertise of land, resources, culture and spirit. 

We honor the elders, past and present, of the indigenous nations that inhabited the lands of eastern Nebraska: Ponca, Pawnee, Omaha and Otoe-Missouria 

We honor the many other indigenous nations that we do not name but who lived on or traveled these lands over thousands of years, as well as those who live on these lands today.  

We honor this land upon which we work, learn and live on. We pledge to steward it throughout the generations.
