Diversity and Inclusion Group
DIG – an organization, founded by members of the athletic department, that focuses on creating a more inclusive department. Their goal is to “DIG deeper” into their conversations and relationships so that they can become more understanding and accepting of one another.
They have also created a student-run DIG group to promote the same inclusive environment among student athletes.
Here are some of the ways Northwood promotes the value of diversity through its academic programming.
