Faculty Opportunities

The School of Nursing is committed to sustaining an inclusive environment that embraces, celebrates and benefits from the uniqueness of each of our community members. This commitment is based on our belief that the dignity of each human being is to be respected and nurtured. We value each individual’s unique attributes, behaviors and values, recognizing that each of us is influenced by our environment, social norms, cultural values, past experiences, religious beliefs and life choices. Since we also believe that human beings exist in relation to one another, the emphasis on community building and celebration of differences serves to strengthen our ties to one another.
