Office of Diversity and Cultural Affairs (ODCA)
Columbia University School of Nursing is committed to social justice and health equity and fostering a culture of inclusion. We embrace diversity in our education, research, and practice, and within our community. We believe this ideal leads to transformation, innovation, and leadership in nursing.
Our Office of Diversity and Cultural Affairs (ODCA) supports our commitment to increasing diversity in the recruitment, retention, and mentoring of students, faculty, and staff. The office provides a platform for open discussion of critical issues and advancing community connections. We seek to promote an environment of inclusiveness where diversity is embraced and celebrated, and we strive to foster a climate of tolerance, transparency, accountability, and fair and honest communication.
