Diversity and Inclusion at IANR

IANR’s Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

We value the contributions of each person and strive to make each interaction matter. Our strategic direction related to diversity and inclusion is closely aligned with and contributes to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s N2025 strategic plan. We are committed to engaging in practices that demonstrate the value of diversity and inclusive excellence.

We recognize that when we value diversity through inclusive practices the results are creativity, innovation and a sense of belonging—precisely what is needed to tackle the grand challenges being addressed by the more than 1,900 faculty and staff and more than 3,100 students of the Institute.

In fulfilling our mission related to teaching and learning, research, and extension, we consider and implement ways to respect and value each person’s background, experience, ability, ideology, culture, and identity. The degree to which we can create a welcoming and inclusive environment is the degree to which we can maximize our impact, both today and into the future.

We strongly encourage applications for faculty, staff, and administrator positions from qualified individuals from groups who are underrepresented in the fields and disciplines related to agriculture, natural resources, and the human sciences.

Activities and initiatives in IANR are coordinated with the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Diversity and Inclusion.
