The IU School of Nursing has unveiled a new mural titled “A Commitment to Diversity”. The mural depicts five milestone graduates and a faculty member who demonstrate the school’s long-standing commitment to provide Indiana and the nation with a healthcare workforce that is as diverse and compassionate as the populations it serves.
Pictured in the mural are the school’s first African American female graduate; its first African American faculty member; its first Asian and Hispanic male graduates; its oldest graduate; and a graduate representing the LGBTQ+ women who have graduated from the school.
School of Nursing Dean Robin Newhouse serves as Master of Ceremonies for the unveiling, which features remarks by President Pamela Whitten; School of Nursing Associate Dean Wendy Trueblood Miller; Vice President for Diversity and Multicultural Affairs James C. Wimbush; and nursing students Theophilia Denadi and Diana Jimenez Ronquillo. The mural was painted by Raheem Terrell Rashawn Elmore, an IU student working on a dual Ph.D. in English Literature and African American & African Diaspora Studies.
