There are a wide variety of resources for faculty and staff at the University. iSchool students have access to a range of events, programs and support offered by the Diversity Programs Advisor. In addition, prospective and international students can discover funding resources for underrepresented groups in the Future Students sections under each program. Students, staff and faculty are also encouraged to explore community resources and learn more about key diversity initiatives at the iSchool and across the UW:
The office of Graduate Student Equity & Excellence (GSEE)
The GSEE 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 Anti-Racism Resources
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
The 2017-2021 Diversity Blueprint builds on our past successes, acknowledges where additional work is necessary, and helps articulate university-wide efforts to advance a shared path forward.
