Since 2006, NUBAA’s 5K Race for Diversity has raised scholarship funds for deserving Northwestern students who might not otherwise be able to attend. This family friendly, signature event occurs along Northwestern’s beautiful lakefront in June and welcomes the entire NU world—alumni, undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, staff, and the general public—regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or physical ability.
Northwestern has accepted the charge of diversity, naming one of its top four goals of the Northwestern Development Plan “Connect to the Community” in an effort to reflect and embrace the increasingly diverse national population. At NUBAA, we believe that NU should be on the vanguard among peer institutions, all of whom have made similar commitments to diversity, and our 5K is a fun, healthy way accomplish our goal.
