Office of Equity & Diversity
The goals for the Office for Equity and Diversity include:
- Promoting a campus-wide understanding of equity and diversity that is evident in academic programs and curriculum, student activities, administrative functions;
- Monitoring the demographic composition of UW Tacoma faculty, students and staff to assess changes in access and success and take action when needed;
- Fostering community through authentic dialogue and interpersonal engagement at all levels and across multiple boundaries.
Achieving these goals is only possible with the collaboration and assistance of UW Tacoma faculty, staff and students. Together we can create the change we want to have at UW Tacoma!
