School of Nursing Statement of Commitment to Anti-Racism

The OHSU SON acknowledges the structural racism embedded in our society, education, and healthcare. We also acknowledge that the profession of nursing and OHSU, are steeped in a history of exclusion and white privilege, a reality that calls upon us to consciously and actively seek to unlearn, learn, and practice our commitment to combat racism daily. We recognize the painful and racist history of Oregon that overshadows and adds to the challenge and importance of our anti-racism work. In response, we firmly commit to disarming racism by reasserting diversity, equity, and inclusion as core values of our school and coming together as one community of students, staff, faculty, and community partners in support of each and every one of our members of color, in condemning racism in all of its forms. The initial focus of our actions will be our own school and will include all of our members, through individual and collective commitment and intentional practice.”
