UVM Green and University Row

Our diverse, multicultural and inclusive community

Central to the College of Nursing and Health Sciences’ mission is the goal to prepare members of our community to be globally responsible and engaged citizens. We value the identity and background of every individual and our capacity to create positive and productive connections as a community.

Our Framework for Inclusive Excellence is a working document modeled after UVM's Framework for Building a More Diverse, Inclusive and Multiculturally Competent Campus.

We value the thoughts, concerns, and ideas of all community members

Our journey toward establishing a diverse, multicultural and inclusive community has been led by committed and courageous students, faculty, staff and institutional leaders who have understood that, to be an institution of true academic excellence, UVM must consider the knowledge, skills and diverse experiences of all.
