Justice, Equity, DIversity & Inclusion

The School of Nursing Committee on Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion invites discussion and input on the ideals listed below.


Justice is a fair and just relationship between society and individuals. This includes the distribution of wealth, power, education, health care and all other forms of personal and social rights and privileges. Justice entails providing disadvantaged individuals and groups access to these rights in a way that is most effective for the disadvantaged.


Equity is concerned with a system of justice and fairness. Equitable access to resources, services and power recognizes that all individuals or groups do not have the same starting point for access, and thus aims to ensure individuals are fairly positioned to benefit from resources, services and power.


Diversity entails social, physical and psychological variation among individuals and groups, including race, gender, sexuality, nationality, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic background, educational background, mental and physical ability, and is not limited to these categories. 


Inclusion necessitates that an environment is welcoming, respectful and supportive of all individuals and groups so that all members of our community are able to participate to the best of their ability.
