Being an active member of the Jacksonville community is second nature for Dr. Beth Dibble. As the assistant director for admissions for the nursing programs, Dibble uses her skills to help in the Jacksonville and UNF communities.
“The community focus that the campus embraces is inspirational and infectious; it spills over into every aspect of the institution,” Dibble said.
At UNF, Dibble has been involved with Lend-A-Wing Pantry donations, a Bahamas relief drive and the Student Nurses' Association, which is one of her favorite volunteer organizations.
“[I enjoyed] raising funds to support local breast cancer education and resource initiatives with my students through the UNF Student Nurses’ Association—especially our involvement with the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign,” Dibble said.
Dibble has worked with organizations outside of the University including the American Cancer Society and serves as an ambassador for prospective educational doctorate students at Capella University.
One of her biggest highlights is being a part of the Hope Lodge with American Cancer Society and Mayo Clinic, which offers free lodging for people traveling to receive cancer treatment.
“It brings joy to the heart to get involved in something about which you are passionate,” Dibble said. “It means the world to me to be recognized for doing something that comes naturally.”
