Diversity Policy
 

It is the policy of the North Dakota Council of Teachers of English to demonstrate sensitivity to the concerns of a diverse population and to make sure they are represented on Council-sponsored programs. Whenever possible, NDCTE will undertake the following actions: to include a diverse population on appointed commissions, boards, committees, task forces and other groups; to include a diverse population among leadership of the above groups; to include a diverse population among the nominees presented by the nominating committee; to include in NDCTE conventions and workshop sessions dealing with interests of a diverse population and using as consultants practicing teachers of  a diverse population from the levels of instructions concerned; to include a diverse population in verbal and visual materials intended to represent or describe NDCTE; and to include a diverse population as targeted groups in any recruiting efforts.
