Consistent with its mission and philosophy, and those of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (“UNC-CH”), the School of Nursing at UNC-CH is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for its prospective and enrolled students, faculty and staff, and to ensuring that educational and employment decisions are based on individuals’ abilities and qualifications.  Consistent with this principle and applicable laws, it is therefore the School of Nursing’s policy not to discriminate in offering access to its educational programs and activities or with respect to employment terms and conditions on the basis of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, veteran’s status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.  


The School of Nursing provides reasonable accommodations to otherwise qualified students with disabilities, so long as such disabilities, as determined on a case-by-case basis, do not preclude the student from meeting the qualifications considered essential by the faculty of the School of Nursing for successful completion of the educational objectives of its curriculum. These qualifications are described in the UNC-CH School of Nursing Essential Standards for Admission, Progression and Graduation.

Students who seek disability accommodations should contact the UNC-CH Office of Accessibility Resources and Service at (919) 962-8300. They will determine a student’s eligibility for accommodations and will recommend appropriate resources, accommodations and services.
