MONT Statement of Diversity

MONT and the NNCI community embrace diversity and welcome, recruit, educate, employ, serve, and engage a diverse group of users, students, faculty, and staff with a wide variety of backgrounds, perspectives, interests, and talents, creating a community of teachers, learners, and researchers that exemplifies the best in all of us – in our intellectual pursuits, our diversity of thought, our personal integrity, and our commitment to excellence.

We believe that diversity includes the individual differences among people, including:

  • Gender
  • Social, racial, or ethnic backgrounds
  • Disabilities or handicaps
  • Socioeconomic class
  • Gender identity or expression
  • Sexual orientation
  • Appearance or personal characteristics
  • Political affiliation and opinion
  • Language
  • Religion or beliefs
  • Economic circumstances
  • Philosophical outlooks
  • Veteran status
  • Life experiences

All of these characteristics, both singularly and in combination, contribute to the richness of MONT and the NNCI community.
