Mission Statement:

The Committee on Diversity and Social Justice strives to facilitate and foster an appreciation of diversity within the College of Nursing community in which students, faculty and staff share a greater appreciation and understanding of the value and importance of cultural and ethnic diversity, and in which all students, faculty and staff grow together in their respect and appreciation for one another's rich and varied backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences.

Through an ongoing commitment over time the committee reflects the values and goals of the College of Nursing community and provides programs and opportunities to promote inclusion and an understanding of differing perspectives in working with each other and with patients different from themselves.
