Diversity is differences in social, intellectual, and individual characteristics.
The Capstone College of Nursing values diversity as evidenced by an all-inclusive environment for the communities of interest. Dimensions of social diversity include individuality, sensitivity, tolerance, good will, social justice and cultural competence. Intellectual diversity includes a multiplicity of ideas, autonomy in thinking, flexibility and respect for varied teaching strategies. Diversity is recognizing, appreciating and using the unique attributes and contributions of all individuals to enhance the richness of the academic environment regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, political beliefs, spiritual perspectives or other ideologies.
