Multicultural Outreach & Recruitment
MOR Group Visitations
Thank you for your interest in visiting the University of Washington! The Multicultural Outreach & Recruitment (MOR) office looks forward to hosting you on campus.
MOR Group Visitations consist of a 30-minute admission presentation and a 75-minute tour, led by a MOR Student Ambassador. MOR Group Visitations provide a great introduction to the University of Washington, highlight the collection of services offered by the Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity (OMA&D) and MOR Student Ambassadors share their experience of being a University of Washington Student.
Who We Serve

We work closely with schools and community-based partners who serve students from low-income, first-generation and historically underrepresented backgrounds. Given the high volume of tours requested, priority consideration will be given to groups consisting of high school juniors, high school seniors, and prospective transfer students.
