General Information
The University Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Committee (UDIAC) is "working toward a goal of 100% employee participation in cultural responsiveness training, and application of intersectional approaches to pedagogy, research, and curriculum on diversity." See p4 of their 2019-2020 Strategic Plan. After the Derek Chauvin trial ended in April 2021, the leaders of WOU made a statement that said, in part, "In the coming weeks and months, you can expect to see more information about projects, programs, and initiatives from all over campus toward inclusivity, anti-racism, bias reduction and equity; including new policies, training programs and opportunities to share your ideas/needs."

  • Anti-Racism, Bias, and Diversity Training

    The WOU College of Education has established JEDI: The office of Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion centers anti-racism and anti-colonialism in our college. By placing justice first, we amplify the need to name oppression and remove barriers for students, staff, and faculty who traditionally experience inequity, invisibility, and harm in institutions of higher education.
