Diversity and Civil Rights

As the leadership team for the NDSU Extension Service, we affirm our commitment to civil rights laws and requirements, to institutional equal opportunity and affirmative action policies, and to the creation of an inclusive and multicultural organization that serves appropriately all the people of this state. While recognizing the importance of nondiscrimination, we want this organization to reach beyond legal requirements to incorporate a recognition and appreciation of the values and benefits that diversity contributes to our organization's life and mission.

We also endorse and support our continuing participation in the Change Agent States Project where we have been involved since its creation. This effort, coupled with our civil rights compliance, is the foundation on which we build an organization where each employee, volunteer, and client is treated with respect and expected to behave respectfully toward others.
