Augusta University College of Nursing is committed to providing an excellent learning experience and welcoming environment for all of its students and employees. Led by the College Administration and diversity officer, the College is on an exciting journey to create a climate of success for all CON community members.
The College of Nursing implemented an aggressive plan with the goals:
A key component of the plan was to establish an advisory committee to guide the College's diversity and inclusion efforts. The first group of advisors, comprised of representatives from the greater Augusta community, University, and College (students, staff and faculty), was convened in February 2014.
