About Us

aboutus

The Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity Recruitment and Outreach team is committed to serving students from pre-college to enrollment at the University of Washington. Our mission, consistent with that of the University’s diversity statement, is to serve as a resource for historically underrepresented (African American, Latino, American Indian, Pacific Islander and Southeast Asian) students of color as well as students who have been historically disenfranchised from higher education. We provide programs and opportunities to attract, prepare, and increase the number of racially and ethnically underrepresented students who successfully matriculate at the University. It is our belief that enrolling students with a multiplicity of interests and experiences, intellectual and cultural perspectives enrich the learning environment for everyone.
