Diversity & Inclusion

Students at college event

At the UIC College of Nursing, diversity is more than a concept or a core value; it's a conscious and consistent behavior by which we strive to ensure everyone here feels a sense of belonging.

College of Nursing Diversity Strategic Plan: Goals and Strategies

The University of Illinois at Chicago defines diversity as, “the totality of the ways people are similar and different, including race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation and identity, disability, national origin and citizenship status, age, language, culture, religion, and economic status, particularly when those similarities and differences are used as a basis for unfair advantage and inequity.”  The goals in our diversity strategic plan are based on multiple sources of data including the College of Nursing Diversity Strategic Thinking document and the university document, “Through the Lens of Diversity.”

A Mosaic for UIC Transformation

Compiled by UIC’s Diversity Strategic Thinking and Planning Committee, “A Mosaic for UIC Transformation” is a statement of priorities, goals and actions that will position diversity as fundamental to all campus activities. “A Mosaic for UIC Transformation” embraces our vision of a campus where each individual member, through academic excellence, realizes her or his full capacity for creativity, innovation and service.
