Diversity Resources

There are a wide variety of resources for students and faculty at the University as well as in the community. In addition, prospective and international students can discover funding resources for underrepresented groups in the Future Students sections under each program:

Graduate Opportunities and Minority Achievement Program: GO-MAP
GO-MAP sponsors educational and social events throughout thee year that help students connect with faculty, alumni, and other students. While many of GO-MAP's events and programming are geared toward underrepresented minority graduate students, they are open to all University of Washington graduate students.

Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity: OMA&D
The University of Washington Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity (OMA&D) works to increase diversity on campus and enrich the collegiate experience of all UW students, faculty and staff.

Race & Equity Initiative at the UW: REI
President Ana Mari Cauce launched a Race and Equity Initiative in spring 2015, challenging all of us — students, faculty, staff and university leadership — to take responsibility for addressing our own biases and improving our university culture.  The UW REI site shows different ways in which these issues are being addressed with increased funding, and a blog to inform of what is happening on and around campus.

UW Diversity Blueprint
Interested in reviewing the 2010-14 blueprint to see how we measured up? With many of the goals for the 2010-14 cycle met or exceeded, the Diversity Council is now working to complete the 2016-20 Diversity Blueprint.
