NWU’s Belonging Survey

The Purpose of NWU’s Belonging Survey

这项调查旨在衡量内布拉斯加州卫斯理大学在创造一个让校园社区的每个成员都有归属感的环境方面的有效性. Questions focus on how current practices foster or inhibit belonging, and how existing diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts are succeeding or failing.

自2019年9月以来,NWU的归属感调查已成为我们战略规划过程的一部分. 古德校长希望评估校园的归属感,以了解如何最好地将社区发展成为一个每个人都有归属感的地方.

Even before Good was hired, 校长遴选委员会决定,第17任校长应该优先考虑真正的增长,而不是更加多元化, equitable and inclusive campus. This survey stems from this priority.

Sharing Survey Results

我们将评估汇总数据,以确定我们在培养校园归属感方面的成功或失败. We’ll report the data and our interpretation. 我们将与行政委员会和理事会分享我们的建议. The university’s leadership will use this information to support, guide or alter NWU’s strategic initiatives over the coming years.

Bias Education Response Team (BERT)

Nebraska Wesleyan University is committed to being a safe community for everyone to learn, work and grow. 当我们目睹偏见或仇恨事件时,校园社区的所有成员都有责任大声疾呼.

What is a bias incident?

A bias incident is conduct or expression that targets an individual or group based on race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, cultural background or other characteristics. Bias incidents include a range of behaviors including telling cruel jokes, 基于他人在某个群体中的真实或感知的成员身份而辱骂或骚扰.

What is a hate crime?

仇恨犯罪是一种行为或表达的行为,其中明显有偏见动机作为促成因素,并已上升到犯罪的程度. So, while all hate crimes are bias incidents, not all bias incidents are hate crimes.

What is the impact?

Hate crimes and bias incidents don't just victimize individuals; they harm communities by making others feel unwelcome or less safe. We must work together to reduce bias and eliminate hate on our campus.

Reporting incidents of bias or hate

If you have experienced or witnessed bias or hate, or if you are advocating for someone who may have, the Bias Education Response Team (BERT) wants to hear from you. BERT可以调查投诉并作出适当回应,以支持受害者并教育校园社区.

If a crime has occurred, call 911. Once you are safe, report the incident to the Bias Response Team as soon as possible at reportbias [at] joaofranco.net (reportbias[at]nebrwesleyan[dot]edu) or (402) 465-7732.

BERT begins investigations of all reports of bias or hate within 48 hours. Possible interventions may include referrals to University Judiciary. BERT provides feedback on reported incidents, 提出预防未来校园事件的方法,并提出解决问题的方案. Our BERT facilitator, Candice Howell, can also be reached at chowell [at] joaofranco.net (chowell[at]nebrwesleyan[dot]edu).

Land Honor and Acknowledgement

Here at Nebraska Wesleyan, we acknowledge the truth that the land we work, learn and live on is the ancestral and forcibly ceded territory of indigenous nations.

我们承认,这些国家所依赖的土地和自然资源过去和现在都与它们的特性有着不可分割的联系, cultures and livelihoods, as well as their physical and spiritual well-being.

We honor vital ancestral knowledge and expertise of land, resources, culture and spirit.

We honor the elders, past and present, of the indigenous nations that inhabited the lands of eastern Nebraska: Ponca, Pawnee, Omaha and Otoe-Missouria.

我们向许多其他土著民族致敬,我们没有说出他们的名字,但他们在这片土地上生活或旅行了数千年, as well as those who live on these lands today.

We honor this land upon which we work, learn and live. We pledge to steward it throughout the generations.
