Message from UCalgary Nursing Dean Dr. Sandra Davidson
As part of the University of Calgary, the Faculty of Nursing is committed to an equitable, diverse and inclusive campus that is accessible to all and free from harassment, bullying and discrimination. We also recognize that diverse faculty, staff, students and alumni benefit and enrich the work, teaching, learning and research experiences of the entire campus and broader community.
We are committed to removing barriers that have been, and continue to be, encountered by equity-seeking groups, including women, Indigenous peoples, visible and racialized minorities, persons with disabilities and LGBTQ2+ communities (University of Calgary, 2021).
What does this mean for nurses? We have a long history of promoting social justice through our professional work. We abide by a code of ethics, upholding principles of justice, safeguarding human rights, equity, fairness and promoting the public good. It is our ethical responsibility to not discriminate on the basis of a person's ethnicity, culture, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, social status, health status or any other attribute. We also respect the special history and interest of Indigenous Peoples (CNA, 2017, p. 15).
All UCalgary Nursing students, faculty and staff must stand in solidarity to support an equitable, diverse and inclusive environment. We also commit to working together to continue thriving within our strengths as a diverse community.
