Our Commitment to an Inclusive Learning Environment

The UNCG School of Nursing is committed to an inclusive learning environment. We acknowledge our imperfections as we fully commit to the work of promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion not only to bring about excellence and innovation, but to seek out justice. The School of Nursing will not tolerate any form of racism, whether explicit or implicit. It is our expectation that every member of our University community, inside and outside the classroom, uphold a standard of civility and respect. The School of Nursing supports students from all diverse backgrounds and perspectives, that students’ learning needs be addressed, and that the diversity students bring to class be viewed as resources, strengths, and benefits.

The School of Nursing strives to create a community of inclusivity and equitability, and we acknowledge the unfortunate fact that incidents of nonobjectivity or discrimination occur, whether intentional or unintentional. The breadth of diversity can include but is not limited to sex, race, age, ethnicity, national origin, creed, socioeconomic class, veteran status, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, intellectual and physical ability, cognitive style, communication style, or political ideology. Each of these diverse identities formulate the perspectives that students, staff, and faculty bring to our department. 

Dr. Victoria Hammett, the UNCG School of Nursing Assistant to the Dean for Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion, is a departmental resource available to anyone seeking support or with questions about equity, diversity and inclusion. If you experience or witness an act of bias or discrimination or need to report an incident, please contact Dr. Heidi Krowchuk, Associate Dean for Academic Programs.
