Northcentral University's definition of diversity encompasses multiple dimensions. We use the NU Diversity Wheel to demonstrate the intersectionality of those dimensions.  We believe diversity includes all aspects on one's identity including but not limited to internal dimensions such as gender, race, sexual orientation, etc.; community dimensions like marital status, education, religion, language, etc.; life experience dimensions such as experiencing historical events, personal history of abuse or prosperity, various living or employment situations, etc.; and current NU institutional dimensions such as roles (e.g., student, staff, faculty, governing board, administrators, and stakeholders), school or department association, organizational position, etc..  

We believe that all aspects make up one diverse identity and enrich the university. ​ ​​​​​​
