Statement on Racism and Bias
The Orvis School of Nursing unequivocally rejects white supremacy, racism, and other forms of hate and bias. We will work to dismantle racism and discrimination on campus, in our communities, and in society as part of our shared efforts to elevate humanity. We are committed to creating a campus community where all can work and learn freely, safely, and productively, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, origin, citizenship status, sexual orientation, gender identity, political affiliation, economic status, veteran status, or ability.
The Orvis School of Nursing is committed to promoting and protecting equity, diversity, and inclusion for our entire community. Our commitment embodies the intersectionality of the human experience and includes qualities such as race, gender, ethnicity, physical ability, nationality, age, religion, sexual orientation, first-generation status in higher education, economic status, and veteran status.
We are committed to providing a welcoming environment for our diverse community, and we seek to promote these ideas through our teacher educators, human development professionals, and our counseling experts. To accomplish these critical goals, we integrate equity, diversity, and inclusion principles throughout our curriculum, which in turn yields world-class professionals who are most equipped to navigate these complicated topics.
