The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Department is an evolving entity at The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences (TCC). We continue to process change, development, and transformation, not only at the college or within the work of the department, but also in the surrounding communities of the college.
We are committed to creating a campus environment that values, appreciates, and celebrates diversity while promoting inclusiveness, multiculturalism, and global awareness. We will know that inclusive excellence is achieved when all individuals on the campus of TCC feel welcomed, respected, and encouraged to achieve their goals.

Definition of Diversity
The definition of diversity at The Christ College of Nursing is broad; it includes, but is not limited to, individual differences, such as personality, learning styles and life experiences, and group/social differences such as age, race and ethnicity, gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, language, nationality, physical and mental abilities, political viewpoint, and religion (Adapted from Association of American Colleges & Universities, 2009).
Office of Diversity
The mission of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences is to promote the academic and personal growth of all students regardless of variations in thoughts, experiences, values and traditions. We consider the rich diversity of our students, faculty, and staff to be both a defining characteristic and an essential source of the strength of our college.
Years of research has shown that diversity in a welcoming and respectful environment, will encourage critical thinking, help reduce stereotypes, and will strengthen the ability to communicate and work across lines of identity and differences. We consider these to be essential skills needed in a globally-connected world. We are committed to providing a diverse learning environment that all students need to grow into the leaders and productive citizens in the healthcare industry.
We believe that diversity enhances the learning experience by exposing and challenging us to consider, weigh and value the thoughts, experiences and practices of others different from ourselves. Our Vision, Mission, and Core Values point out that inclusion is part of our purpose, and in our Diversity Plan we embrace that our college can achieve excellence if we are diverse.
