Diversity at NCU – An Expanded View

At NCU, we value diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). These words often get collapsed together but we wanted to share briefly that when we talk about diversity in our context, we are talking about the diversity of identities that exist among us in terms or race and ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion, economic status, education level, and other identities. We all make up our diverse work environment and we are stronger because of the diversity that exists at NCU.

In honor of American heroes

Memorial Day is a time set aside to honor those that have died in service of our country. This long standing tradition was inspired by the tributes offered to fallen soldiers following the Civil War. Originally held by local communities to pay respects to their lost, an official national holiday was created in May of 1868.

Unique Career Paths for Education Students

It may seem surprising, but not every education based career leads to the classroom. In fact, there are plenty of things you can do with an education-related degree that lead to a career outside of the traditional classroom setting.

If you love the field of education, but aren’t interested in working in the typical school environment, these alternative career ideas might be right for you.
