Vote for the New Name for the Center!

The Center is embarking on a name change-process, and we want your input!

To further align with the Center’s mission to dismantle structural racism in nursing, we have decided to rename the Center for Anti-Racism in Nursing (CARiN). Why a change? Because a “Karen” has become cultural shorthand for a white woman who uses her race and privilege to oppress and malign people of color. Using the Center’s acronym can be triggering and can relay values that are not in alignment with our mission.

To ensure the renaming is an inclusive process, (and in line with the listening session participants feedback that the Center should be community-led in its processes), we invite the School of Nursing community to vote for their preferred new name for the Center.


Voting ends March 17, 2023!
