In October 2022, College of Nursing (CON) faculty and staff approved the 2022-27 CON Strategic Directions. Our mission, vision, and values remain the same as we endorsed in 2017. Our values (empowerment, innovation, caring, social justice, and integrity) frame the CON mission: “We educate and inspire leaders to transform health care for a just and humane world.” Our vision is “We are recognized as an engaged, creative and dynamic learning organization, committed to social justice, innovation, scholarship, teaching excellence, and the formation of professionals ready to meet the evolving health care needs of a global community.” Our plan consists of five “commitments to excellence”: (1) Dynamic Learning Organization; (2) Health, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion; (3) Innovative and Integrative Scholarship; (4) Academic Excellence; and (5) Leadership Formation.
