Diversity is an inherent ingredient in an excellent education
To help the University of Washington reach even higher among the nation's foremost universities, we must continue to do all we can to create a diverse academic community.
An educational experience that fails to expose students -- majority and minority -- to multicultural perspectives or that does not include interaction in a diverse community simply cannot measure up. All students leaving the University have to be able to take their places in the global village. We must continue to build a multicultural academic community because it is an inherent ingredient in an excellent education.
