Diversity Vision & Mission
The vision of the WSU Tri-Cities Diversity Council is to transform the WSU Tri-Cities community so that we achieve and value unity through diversity.
The purpose of the WSU Tri-Cities Diversity Council is to advance an inclusive climate of diversity in which differences among people are promoted, respected and valued.
The Diversity Council supports a diverse climate through initiatives designed to empower students, staff, and faculty to act in socially just ways and to create, facilitate, embrace, and maintain a culture of diversity on the WSU Tri-Cities campus. These initiatives include facilitating training programs, supporting curriculum revisions to include issues of diversity, and being present at events and on committees.
We demonstrate a commitment to diversity through the recruitment and retention of a diverse student body, staff, and faculty.
We promote the value of diversity by initiating and maintaining a reciprocal dialog between the Council, faculty, staff, students, administration, and the community around issues and concerns related to diversity.
