Diversity in Action Committee — DIVA™
The mission of DIVA™ is to create a welcoming, inclusive, and respectful community for students, faculty, and staff in the School of Nursing. We embrace the “big umbrella” of diversity to include human diversity in its many forms: gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, physical ability, socioeconomic status, age, and spiritual and political beliefs, among others. To this end, DIVA™ focuses on addressing issues related to bias, stereotyping, prejudicial attitudes, and exclusionary practices in order to create a welcoming environment with a particular focus on underrepresented faculty, students, and staff. Please use the navigation to the right for information on: Activities & Projects, DIVA™ Events, History & Past Accomplishments, and Members.
DIVA's™ activities include: Faculty Diversity training modules, H*E*A*L*S training and mediation, Annual Fall Welcoming Reception for School of Nursing, consultation/mediation, and other activities.
We are a resource to you — to share feedback, concerns, and positive highlights about your experiences in the School of Nursing. Feel free to call on us!
