Happy New Year from OMA&D

Dear Alumni, Colleagues and Friends,

As we begin this new year, I am reflecting on what I am most thankful for – family, friends and working with a talented team of OMA&D staff members, dedicated colleagues across our UW campuses, inspired leadership, engaged alumni and amazing students.

Even in contentious times, there are many things for which we can be grateful and I very much appreciate the large and small ways that you contribute to the Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity, the UW and most importantly our students. It was also wonderful to engage with many of you at OMA&D’s 50th anniversary events over the past year. To see such strong show of support for this legacy of work across our community was outstanding.

The efforts to advance diversity, equity and inclusion are as important today as they ever have been, but together we can and we will make a difference.

Wishing you all a very happy and healthy 2019.
