Inclusivity, Diversity & Equity

We welcome and affirm all

The School of Nursing embraces the equity and diversity commitment of the University of Minnesota:


Leverage the transformative power of equity and diversity to advance excellence in teaching, research and community engagement at the University of Minnesota.


We envision a University where equity and diversity are:

  1. Integrated into the work and lives of every student, faculty, and staff member.
  2. Recognized as core institutional values, and will inform thinking, policies, and practices throughout the University.
  3. Inherently intertwined with academic excellence and the development of leaders for a globally inclusive society.
