Diversity Statement Deans’ Advisory Board on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion The College of Nursing & Health Professions (CNHP) of Drexel University holds that diversity is fundamental to all our endeavors and enriches the educational—and human—experience. We dedicate ourselves to creating a cultural climate in which all members of the CNHP community feel welcomed, respected, valued, and included as participants. We seek to create an institution in which our faculty, staff, and students reflect the diversity and complexity of our city and the global community. We acknowledge past and ongoing injustices in society at large, and are committed to reflection, dialogue and action to address our role in perpetuating these injustices and formulating strategies to prevent them. We are committed to reducing inequities in our education, research, practice, policy and civic engagement initiatives. We seek to be inclusive and meet the needs of the diverse populations whom we teach, collaborate with and serve as we work together to promote health and eliminate health disparities.
