Diversity in the Future
The UW has launched an initiative to embed diversity across the campus. The Diversity Blueprint will serve as a piece of the president’s Two Years to Two Decades Initiative
and has established six major areas of emphasis: diversity in curriculum and research; leadership and missions on campus; attracting and retaining diverse students, faculty and staff; diversity-rich learning experiences in the classroom; preparing students to be global
citizens; and creating an overall welcoming climate for diversity.
Representatives from each academic unit have been asked to assess needs and priorities in departments across campus to determine how the school is positioned in relation to the established goals.
The UW hopes to finalize the diversity plan by 2014.
