Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
ELAC Nursing Program is committed to creating a diverse community, one that is inclusive, responsive, and supportive of all its students, faculty, and staff. We will ensure diversity is respected in its many forms. These include but are not limited to race, ethnicity, age, socioeconomic status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, diversability, physical ability, and place of origin. We also recognize that we live in an increasingly interconnected world and that students benefit from learning in educational and social contexts in which there are people from all backgrounds. The goal is to encourage students to appreciate diverse experiences and perspectives throughout their lives. All members of the college community share a responsibility for creating, maintaining, and developing a learning environment in which differences are valued, equity is sought, and inclusiveness is practiced.
