Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity

Building on a Legacy of Excellence, Diversity and Inclusion

In spring 2018, the Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity (OMA&D) celebrated its 50th anniversary – a significant milestone for the University of Washington and the communities we serve. Together we looked back to honor our rich legacy of work on behalf of diversity, equity and inclusion, and celebrated our impact. And together we looked ahead – to imagine the possibilities for the next 50 years.
