Diversity Statement - School of Nursing
In the School of Nursing, we commit to supporting diversity and inclusion. We strive to construct a safe and inclusive environment by recognizing and respecting each other’s differences with dignity. We honor each individual’s experiences, beliefs, perspectives, and backgrounds, regardless of race, religion, language, immigration status, sexual orientation, gender identification, ability status, socio-economic status, national identity, or any other identity markers.
Our classes are safe spaces for free inquiry and open exchange of ideas. Difficult issues may be confronted, and controversial ideas exchanged. All of us should feel responsible for creating a space that is both intellectually rigorous and respectful. Respect and mindfulness of one’s role in the exchange of ideas are imperative, particularly when disagreement occurs.
As faculty, we will respect the value of every student in this class. All students are encouraged to share their unique perspective as an individual, not as a representative of any group or category. Multicultural and intracultural awareness and competencies are key leadership skills, and faculty will present material and classroom activities that respect and celebrate diversity of thought, background, and experience. If we fall short of these promises, please do not hesitate to let us know. Faculty welcome all students’ voices in achieving a welcoming environment regarding diversity and inclusivity.
