National University prides itself on the supportive and team-orientated environment that we share where accomplishments are celebrated, advancement and growth opportunities are supported, and leadership means leading by example with care and encouragement.

Diversity and Inclusion

At National University, we believe diversity and inclusion represent the foundation of our success. That’s why we strive to build and sustain a culture of belonging that celebrates different backgrounds and perspectives. These unique voices and experiences are crucial to creating an equitable future for our students. Learn more about the office of Social Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (S-JEDI), and our mission.

Further diversifying our community is NU’s steadfast commitment to the hiring and professional advancement of military servicemembers and their families. In our national partnership with Psych Armor, we provide training for employees and are proud of our status as a Veteran-Ready Org™.

At NU, 25% of our student population is comprised of military servicemembers, Veterans, spouses, and dependents, and we believe the discipline, commitment, and teamwork gained during military service creates exemplary candidates for careers at NU. Our MilVet colleagues are uniquely adept at providing support and encouragement to our military-affiliated students. Their invaluable firsthand experience helps our university support the unique needs and challenges of military students, from application through graduation.

We respect, support, and value the skills and experience brought to our organization by those who bravely and selflessly served their country, and we will continue to build strength from within by actively hiring military-affiliated individuals.
