Diversity and Inclusion

The Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing works to promote diversity and inclusion among students, staff and faculty through open communication with our campus community and events. Our school, and Case Western Reserve University, aspires to be an inclusive environment that sees, hears and treats all members with dignity and fairness. Diversity is the array of differences, both visible and invisible, that may affect human interaction. As we work to become more diverse, we embrace our differences, which add value and advance the goals and objectives for the school of nursing.
