Land acknowledgment

We acknowledge that we live and work on the unceded ancestral lands of the Coast Salish people, the land which touches the shared waters of all tribes and bands within the dxʷdəwʔabš (Duwamish), spuyaləpabš (Puyallup), suq̀ʷabš (Suquamish), Tulalip and Muckleshoot nations, and pay our respects to elders past and present. We make this acknowledgment as one part of our commitment to working to create inclusive and respectful partnerships that honor Indigenous cultures, histories, identities, and sociopolitical realities, that dismantle ongoing legacies of settler colonialism, and that recognize the hundreds of indigenous Nations who continue to resist, live, and uphold their sacred relations across their lands.

We encourage continued engagement with the UW, foster a purposeful retirement through educational and social programs, and advocate for the interests of our members and constituents. We are committed to promoting the multifaceted aspects of racial, gender, and social justice, a commitment we seek to express in all arenas of the UWRA’s operations, activities, and collaborations. Current and retired UW faculty and staff are invited to support UWRA’s work on behalf of all UW retirees by becoming UWRA members.
