SoN’s Accelerated 2013 class is most ethnically diverse in history

The Accelerated 2013 class of the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing is the most ethnically diverse class in the school’s history, according to Nancy Davis Griffin, associate dean for enrollment management and student affairs. Thirty-two percent (42 of 131 students) of the class represents minority ethnicity.

In addition to significant ethnic diversity, the class is internationally well-represented: Three students are from China, and 17 originally came from Belarus, Brazil, China, Colombia, Ecuador, Ghana, Iran, Latvia, Mali, Nigeria, Trinidad & Tobago, Turkey, Great Britain and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Nationally, the class represents 28 states and the District of Columbia, with 30 students coming from Maryland and 28 from California. Fifteen students are Peace Corps Coverdell Fellows, representing 15 different countries.
