Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Promoting a Culture of Respect for All

NCURA’s Diversity and Inclusion Task Force was established in 2017 to evaluate NCURA’s ability to promote and adopt diversity and inclusion strategies at both the national and regional levels of the organization. In 2018, the Task Force was charged with developing an implementation plan that includes recommended guidelines for national and regional adoption in all aspects of NCURA. In March 2018, the Task Force developed NCURA’s Statement on Diversity and Inclusion. In 2020, the statement was rededicated into NCURA’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.


NCURA's Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The National Council of University Research Administrators (NCURA) recognizes, values, and celebrates diversity of persons, skills, and experiences in its mission to advance the profession of research administration. Thus, NCURA is committed to building and maintaining a diverse membership and a culture of inclusion. Every member of NCURA has a right, without regard to gender, race, ethnicity, age, religion, social class, sexual orientation, ability, personality, functional experience, or background, to fair and respectful treatment, equal access to resources to support professional growth, and equitable opportunities to contribute to NCURA’s success.


Additional statements released by NCURA include this email from June 4th, 2020 and this statement from March 19th, 2021.
