2. Diversity initiatives

In recent years, the College has been attempting to promote diversity on their campus. They have added an Office of Diversity Services as well as a Diversity Advisory Council.

The Office of Diversity Services ODS aims to create an inclusive environment for all students. Their main objective is to "identify and remove institutional barriers to inclusiveness and cultural awareness for the student body, the faculty, staff, patients, administrators and the entire campus community." The ODS recognizes that, among others, minorities, men, and international students have historically been underrepresented in the nursing and health science industries.

The schools initiatives have been recognized by the Greater Cedar Valley Alliance and Chamber. In their 2014 Annual Report, they awarded the College with their Diversity and Inclusion Award.
