Applicants sought for Diversity Ambassador Program

Bird's eye view of campus

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is seeking University of Nebraska–Lincoln faculty and staff to assist in attracting diverse talent through its Diversity Ambassador Program.

The program positions faculty and staff to assist search committees in identifying, recruiting and retaining top talent to Nebraska, incorporating best inclusive excellence practices for search processes, and applying university and federal procedures. The program enhances the university’s ability to compete nationally and solve emerging needs and challenges by attracting and retaining a diverse workforce that brings unique expertise, perspectives and talents. Ambassadors contribute to the N2025 strategic goal to advance inclusive excellence at Nebraska, strengthening our institutional impact and reach.

Faculty and staff interested in participating as diversity ambassadors must commit to attend training; follow search procedures specified by the offices of Diversity of Inclusion and Institutional Equity and Compliance; assist with assigned searches; and help facilitate the university’s required search compliance training.

Ambassadors will receive a stipend for the work.

Full-time faculty and staff should email application materials to by June 26. The application should include a curriculum vitae or resume; a statement of interest that describes personal interest in being a diversity ambassador, how the candidate applies or practices inclusive excellence on and/or off campus, and how the candidate envisions themselves in the new role. A brief letter of endorsement from department/unit leadership is also required.
