Show Your Respect!

Show Your Respect!


What does respect mean to you?

UNL is committed to creating and maintaining a welcoming and inclusive campus community that provides support for the personal and professional development and growth of all its members—student, staff, faculty and visitors. Bias incidents or hostile climate actions directed at any member of our community are unacceptable. Every individual is valued and must feel welcomed and included as a member of our campus community. The Husker Red Respect Program has been put in place to help respond to incidents when they occur.

Be the Change by Showing Your Red!

Caring: Stand Up. Speak Up. Why I should care? 

Being a good citizen is the foundation of developing and maintaining a healthy community.

UNL’s community values include:

  • Being dependable, caring, and living with integrity
  • Demonstrating commitment, open-mindedness, and respect for self and others
  • Being a good citizen

Our community values relate to creating a respectful, welcoming and inclusive environment for everyone at UNL. Reporting bias incidents or hostile actions—and assisting individuals involved in them—are important ways to show your red.” By supporting university policies, including the non-discrimination policy and the student code of conduct, you can demonstrate our shared community values and help create an environment where individuals feel valued, safe, welcome and included. Reporting bias incidents enables us to respond in ways that are most helpful for anyone experiencing bias and also assist those who engage in bias-motivated behavior. Our ultimate goal is to support our community values while developing and maintaining a respectful, more welcoming and inclusive campus community.
