A Message From The Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity
Thank you for taking the opportunity to visit the CON DEI website. My role is to assist the CON in achieving inclusive excellence while helping to create a vision that reflects a diverse, safe learning environment in all aspects of our mission- teaching, research, practice, and service. Additionally, I help lead initiatives aimed at enhancing the recruitment, retention, and success of underrepresented groups in the field of nursing. We all rise and fall together, and there is strength in diversity. Feel free to reach out to my office if we can be of service to you.
