Vision Statement: 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.

Mission Statement: 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.

Antiracism Statement: 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.

Values:

Community
is the relationships we have within and across social difference that enable us to love our whole selves and be our best selves in a diverse and too-often unjust world.
Advocacy
is the individual and communal commitment to speak truth to power, build coalitions across difference, and build a more just world.
Social Justice
is the commitment to social and structural transformation to create equitable outcomes for people across all aspects of social difference.
Cultural Humility
is 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.
Accountability
is the responsibility we have as individuals and a community to prioritize justice, honor our commitments, and to repair the harms we may cause.
Joy
is the celebration of the identities, achievements, cultures, and relationships we all bring with us to make UWT a life-giving place.
