Diversity research

For many of WSU Vancouver's faculty, understanding the role and importance of diversity and multicultural issues is a professional as well as personal interest. Across the wide range of academic and professional programs found within WSU Vancouver, our faculty are conducting innovative, thought-provoking, and important research on diversity and the role it plays in the modern world.
