Cultural Diversity

"Each person's map of the world is as unique as the person's thumbprint. There are no two people alike. No two people who understand the same sentence the same way  .  .  . So in dealing with people, you try not to fit them to your concept of what they should be." — MILTON ERICKSON

Mission Statement

The Diversity Task Force at the College of Nursing provides an informational forum for students, faculty and staff to share cultural beliefs and experiences and promote open communication. Explorations of cultural backgrounds by diverse populations can enhance understanding and lessen the challenges of the unknown.

When thinking about cultural diversity, there is an old Spanish proverb, well worth remembering, which says, "He who speaks two languages is worth two people." — Unknown author.
