President's Committee on Diversity

The 25-person Committee on Diversity represents students, faculty and staff of Northern Michigan University. The committee in its current format was created in the Fall of 2012. Previously it was known as the Ethnic Culture Diversity Committee (ECDC). The revised committee now includes a wider representation across the university and into the local community, alumni base and supporters of NMU. A goal of the committee is to heighten the awareness of diversity and increase inclusion opportunities throughout NMU and the Upper Peninsula.

DIVERSITY COMMON READER CHOSEN

"With unflinching honesty and moving prose, Janet Mock relays her experiences of growing up young, multiracial, poor, and trans in America, offering readers accessible language while imparting vital insight about the unique challenges and vulnerabilities of a marginalized and misunderstood population. Though undoubtedly an account of one woman’s quest for self at all costs, Redefining Realness is a powerful vision of possibility and self-realization, pushing us all toward greater acceptance of one another—and of ourselves—showing as never before how to be unapologetic and real." ~Amazon
