Diversity and Inclusivity

We seek to foster an inclusive and reflexive community by actively working against intentional and unintentional exclusionary practices.
Our work on diversity and community encompasses intersecting dimensions of difference (gender, class, race, disability, religion, sexual orientation) and values how we do our work as much as what work we do.

diversityThe Diversity and Inclusivity Committee, consisting of faculty and graduate student members coordinates our department’s work toward these goals. We regularly organize and facilitate events for around strengthening departmental diversity and inclusivity. We welcome involvement and input. Please email <selwood@uw.edu> with questions about the committee and its work.
