Diversity, equity and inclusion

Inclusive UMSN

The University of Michigan School of Nursing is committed to being a welcome, diverse community. We believe that everyone's education is enriched when varying viewpoints and backgrounds are engaged. 

We are a community that is built from diversity. We believe that diversity, the presence of difference, must be joined with equity, the parity of difference, and inclusion, an open welcome to difference. We are not excellent if we do not welcome all experiences in our community.
