Woman singingDiversity Matters

Embracing differences in individuals maximizes the potential of the group, so it's important for UNIBusiness to have a diverse student body, faculty and staff.

Diversity describes the rich differences that people bring to the University of Northern Iowa community. It can refer broadly to culture, identity and ideology, or more specifically to age, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, ability, gender identity, socioeconomic status, political affiliation, marital status, national origin or veteran status. Diversity is a dynamic concept, shaped by history, and changing as our understanding of the world and its people evolves.

And just as wise investors diversify their portfolios, we think it's wise to diversify our environment.

Accordion Arrow    Dean's Message to Students

"Think about the social networks you invest in like financial portfolios. By the time you graduate you should have a diverse social network. Get involved on campus and off, and interact with people from different backgrounds and with different perspectives. Like a diverse financial portfolio, a diverse social network is preferable -- it's a wise investment in your future."

- UNIBusiness Dean Leslie Wilson
