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:

  • Build capacity to sustain long-term growth in diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  • Cultivate an inclusive environment where diversity is celebrated as a strength of the College.
  • Recruit and retain an academically talented and diverse student body.
  • Recruit and retain a capable and diverse workforce.

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.

Meetings for Access, Success, and Belonging are held on the first Tuesday of every month at 2 PM in EC-5200 & via Teams. Please contact nursing@augusta.edu if you would like to participate.
