We envision a UW Tacoma where all people thrive and where students pursue lives of purpose in which they contribute to the creation of a just world.
The Center for Equity and Inclusion enhances the holistic education of all students by supporting the success of historically marginalized groups, empowering community members to engage difference toward justice, and build a more equitable campus.
We are committed to confronting and dismantling systemic racism, including anti-Blackness, colonialism, xenophobia, and all other forms of oppression, wherever we encounter them as we work toward institutional equity and social justice.
The relationships we have within and across social difference enable us to love our whole selves and be our best selves in a diverse and too-often unjust world.
The individual and communal commitment to speak truth to power, build coalitions across difference, and build a more just world.
The commitment to social and structural transformation to create equitable outcomes for people across all aspects of social difference.
The practice of listening to and sharing stories across social difference in ways that enable us to embrace uncertainty while expanding our worlds to include as many people as possible.
The responsibility we have as individuals and a community to prioritize justice, honor our commitments, and to repair the harms we may cause.
The celebration of the identities, achievements, cultures, and relationships we all bring with us to make UW Tacoma a life-giving place.
