The NDSGC is committed to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) to foster an open and welcoming environment for all. The NDSGC celebrates different perspectives, backgrounds, identities, and experiences, and recognizes that these differences strengthen and enrich our program. The NDSGC provides the opportunity for all to participate equitably in NDSGC programming. The NDSGC is committed to the elimination of barriers that have historically prevented full participation of underserved and underrepresented communities in STEM and NASA initiatives. The NDSGC is committed to an accessible, inclusive, and engaging environment where all feel welcomed, valued, and supported.
The NDSGC encourages all applicants and awardees to review the White House's Executive Order on Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government.
The NDSGC is housed at the University of North Dakota, the lead Space Grant institution. As stated by UND's University Land Acknowledgement, the NDSGC also seeks to show respect, recognition, and gratitude to Indigenous Peoples who call the land home. As of 2022, the UND Land Acknowledgement statement asserts:
Today, the University of North Dakota rests on the ancestral lands of the Pembina and Red Lake Bands of Ojibwe and the Dakota Oyate - presently existing as composite parts of the Red Lake, Turtle Mountain, White Earth Bands, and the Dakota Tribes of Minnesota and North Dakota.
We acknowledge the people who resided here for generations and recognize that the spirit of the Ojibwe and Oyate people permeates this land. As a university community, we will continue to build upon our relations with the First Nations of the State of North Dakota - the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation, Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate Nation, Spirit Lake Nation, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, and Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians.
