Diversity Council

Butch and FriendsThe Diversity Council is made up of WSU Vancouver faculty, staff, administrators and students. The council promotes diversity awareness, supports diversity-related programming and works to enhance the campus climate for diversity in the broadest sense—as a range of ever-changing differences, thinking and personal self-identification practices, rather than any one difference or self-identification. The entire campus represents diversity.

We strive to facilitate interaction, understanding and civil discourse within the campus community, where persons of all cultures, abilities, identities and world views can be embraced and appreciated.

The Diversity Council provides organizational and financial support for events and activities that promote diversity on campus. This includes:

  • Encouraging faculty and students to develop research and curriculum on diversity issues
  • Supporting programs that help prepare and recruit students from underrepresented communities to attend WSU Vancouver
  • Sponsoring cultural and academic events to foster an intellectual and social environment that celebrates diversity on our campus
  • Gauging the campus climate and attitudes toward diversity

Please note that the Diversity Council is not the place for file personal or personnel complaints or individual grievances regarding possible violations of equal rights and workplace discrimination regulations.
