National Center for Institutional Diversity


The National Center for Institutional Diversity (NCID) catalyzes innovative approaches to diversity challenges and opportunities within the university, other major social institutions, the nation, and the world. Addressing diversity in its richest, broadest sense, the NCID promotes, launches, and advances national exemplars that foster concrete, lasting social change.

Although we are proud to participate in the University of Michigan’s history of leadership, we can’t accomplish our mission alone. Please explore the expanding array of exemplary projects, gatherings, and collaborations that make up the vision of the NCID—a vision that we hope will engage you.
