Diversity and Inclusivity Statement

The University of Kentucky College of Nursing embraces diversity and inclusion as core values that support our goal of providing an intellectually stimulating environment where a variety of ideas and perspectives work together to foster innovation.

Diversity describes a community of individuals with varied ideas, world views, and personal characteristics, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, age, socio-economic status, national origin, geographical region, sexual orientation, disability, religion and life experiences.

Inclusion is a culture that encourages collaboration and fairness and leverages diversity so that all individuals are empowered to participate and contribute to their full potential.

We encourage members of the College and University community to contact us with ideas that support and enhance our goal of making the College of Nursing more diverse and inclusive.
