diversity and unity

At MVNU, we believe that embracing and celebrating diversity brings us all closer together.

Our campus community benefits from the diversity of students, staff, and faculty. We are a community of individuals who seek to learn from, and about, one another. Diversity is expressed through racial, ethnic, age, ability, geographic, gender, cultural, and socioeconomic differences among the campus community.

We take our responsibility to offer educational and professional opportunities equitably to all qualified persons seriously. Through our curriculum, programs, and services, we seek to provide understanding and supportive interaction among diverse population groups, respecting individuals’ personal values and ideals.
