The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) College of Nursing is committed to promoting equity, access and inclusion among students, faculty and staff. Nursing knowledge and practice must be sufficiently broad in perspective and content to meet the requirements of a diverse, multicultural population. We, therefore, work to foster a climate that is welcoming and respectful of all individuals and groups. Valuing diversity is part of the vision, mission, values, and philosophy of the College of Nursing and our strategic plan.
The College of Nursing strives to admit, retain and educate a diverse student body, along with faculty and staff. We are committed to promoting understanding and acceptance of social, cultural and economic differences reflected in ethnicity, sex/gender identity and orientation, socioeconomic status, language, age, physical characteristics, disability, pregnancy, veteran status, country of origin, citizenship, religious or political beliefs, military status, and others.
The mission of the MUSC Office of Student Diversity is to promote an inclusive environment for all students regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, age-ability or socio-economic status. The College of Nursing works closely with the Medical University of South Carolina Diversity & Inclusion and Office of Student Diversity to promote an inclusive environment that fosters intellectual excellence and the true integration of a diverse student body into all aspects of academic life.
It is our goal to attract, recruit, admit, retain and educate a diverse student body and faculty. We firmly believe that an atmosphere that embraces equity, inclusion and access will enhance the educational and cultural experiences of our students, faculty and staff, thus making better world citizens.
