Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Louisiana State University Health New Orleans School of Nursing (LSUHNO SON) embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion, for faculty, staff, and students that fosters and supports academic and institutional excellence. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are necessary and critical in pedagogy, research, scholarship, and in the future design and development of strategies eliminating health disparities and improving health care in complex systems. LSUHNO SON recognizes diversity, equity, and inclusion to respect everyone, irrespective of race, ethnicity, gender, age, socioeconomic status, physical abilities, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious affiliation, political belief, or other ideologies. Faculty, staff, and students are not only members, but their unique perspectives are the core of out strength and success. Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in all their forms must be intentional, respectful, and accountable. While every Tiger has its unique stripes, together, we collectively cultivate a shared responsibility, mutual respect, and cultural humility that enriches and enhances us all.
