    Diversity Research Institute


The UW Diversity Research Institute (DRI), developed in 2004 by the Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity, focuses on generating new, interdisciplinary knowledge about diversity, social justice, and institutional transformation.  The DRI currently hosts an annual research conference and an invited lecture series, and supports a number of diversity-related events across the University.  In addition, the DRI works closely with other research centers on campus who encourage and support faculty research on underserved, understudied, and underrepresented communities.

In 2007, the Diversity Research Institute was brought under the leadership of Luis R. Fraga, who also serves as the Associate Vice Provost for Faculty Advancement. The Office of Faculty Advancement and the Diversity Research Institute are closely integrated, allowing for issues of faculty recruitment and retention to be aligned with issues of research.
