Diversity & Inclusion
Midland University takes pride in being one of the most diverse institutions in Nebraska. Nearly one-third of Midland’s students identify themselves as coming from a racial/ethnic background. During the 2019-20 school year, Midland hosted its first-ever “Together We Are Warriors” Equity and Inclusion Summit, an event where 400 students from diverse backgrounds worked together to break down barriers. Midland also hosted the “Together: Bridges Into the Future” Speaker Series that featured five speakers from diverse backgrounds sharing their stories with students and faculty.
In September, the Midland University passed a Resolution of Commitment to Anti-Racist Practices and Policies was unanimously approved by the Midland University Board of Directors. The resolution was created in the belief that all students, faculty, and staff should enjoy a welcoming, open, and safe environment on campus and that diversity, equity, and inclusion are part of Midland’s strengths.
