UNMC Benefit 'U'


UNMC is committed to creating a culturally competent environment that celebrates the richness of diversity represented on campus.

To achieve this goal UNMC offers opportunities throughout the year for employees to come together. Employees can attend the Diversity Lecture Series, Culture Fest, Spirit Week, the Holi Festival of Colors or International Week. 

An advisory council, the Chancellor’s Diversity Advisory Steering Committee, consisting of representatives from all colleges and major units, is charged with making recommendations to the chancellor related to diversity planning, evaluation and accountability. 

It is through enriching experiences, events and discussions that we get to know each other a little better and realize we are more alike than different. 


Whether engaged in patient care, research or education UNMC touches the lives of millions of people. As part of a global health community, we recruit students from around the world and here at home who have an interest in serving patients from all walks of life.

UNMC strives to create an environment of inclusion for everyone – patients, visitors, employees, students. When you step foot on this campus, we hope you feel valued, respected, connected. And we hope you feel this way beyond the confines of our campus as our students, faculty and staff reach out into the surrounding communities, the nation and the world.
