The UW Diversity Council has completed the 2017-2020 Diversity Blueprint.
The priorities of the Diversity Council are to:
- Review and advise on critical diversity issues.
- Coordinate diversity programs and initiatives across the University.
- Advise on and manage diversity planning.
- Identify and disseminate best practices.
In 2010 the Diversity Council responded to the campus community’s calls for the creation of a comprehensive plan that would guide the University of Washington in its stated goals for diversity and inclusion. Many of the goals for the 2010-2014 Blueprint were met or exceeded.
The 2017-2020 Blueprint focuses on advancing faculty initiatives, staff initiatives, campus climate, tri-campus diversity efforts, dissemination of best practices and accountability, all of which are consistent with the work of the Race & Equity Initiative. Activities will be primarily focused on the goals and success metrics adopted in the 2017-2020 Diversity Blueprint.
