Diversity Forums

The GPSS Diversity Committee will be hosting discussions about diversity at the UW throughout the year. These forums are open to any students, faculty and staff that are working on diversity efforts at the UW.  The focus of our Diversity Forums is to encourage conversations about diversity on campus and help bring grads together. This is a great opportunity to have a conversation about diversity among the graduate school student body and share best practices.  Light refreshments are provided. For more information, please contact Elisa Law, GPSS Secretary (gpsssec@uw.edu).
