Equity, Diversity & Inclusion


Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Banner

The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Nursing Committee includes faculty, staff, and student representatives. This committee aims to promote and develop a culture of collaboration and inclusion in the college and university. The committee interprets diversity as embracing and respecting all races, nationalities, colors, creeds, religions, ages, disabilities, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or associational preferences.


The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Nursing Committee (EDI-NC) will advise the Administrative Council and Dean on how the University of Arizona College of Nursing (UACON) can actively foster equity, diversity, and inclusion both within and outside the college to create a positive working and learning environment that promotes Inclusive Excellence. To learn more, see the EDI-NC Bylaws.

Equity, Diversity, And Inclusion Nursing Committee Make-Up

The Equity, Diversity, And Inclusion Nursing Committee is comprised of a point of contact/lead person from various academic programs and units in the college. The charge of the EDI-NC is to lead in the development of an equity, diversity, and inclusion roadmap for the college to use as a guide towards meeting the equity, diversity, and inclusion goals of the UArizona College of Nursing.

Open to All
