Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Diversity defined…

The College of Nursing defines diversity as the variety of differences and similarities among people which can include gender, race/ethnicity, tribal/indigenous origins, age, culture, generation, religion, class/caste, language, education, geography, nationality, different abilities, sexual orientation, work style, work experience, job role and function, military involvement, thinking style, personality type and other ideologies.

Embracing diversity is a core value of our college and speaks to our commitment to represent and honor voices and perspectives that enrich our dialogue and encourage an inclusive, nurturing culture.

From the Chief Diversity Officer

We value, celebrate and embrace diversity among our students, staff, faculty, within our communities and across the globe. We recognize that diversity is not a problem to be solved, but rather an ongoing journey requiring the engagement of everyone to help us be inclusive to everyone. It is my aim to ensure we create an environment where people can learn, work and succeed.
