UW Tacoma Information Technology strives to co-create a diverse, fair and welcoming campus culture that reflects the university's commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). Our department aims to raise awareness and advocate for DEI practices by fostering respectful and supportive relationships within IT and across campus to create a safe and inclusive environment.
Providing services and technologies that empower all to reach their full potential is our top priority. We acknowledge systemic inequities related to technology and work to identify and eliminate barriers that impact our UW Tacoma community. Information Technology is committed to evaluating our policies and services to develop best practices for our campus.
Further, we are dedicated to challenging biases and developing a campus climate free from discrimination based on race, ethnicity, age, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, language, disability status, physical appearance, political standing, religious preference, cultural identity, socioeconomic background, veteran status or previous incarceration.
To ensure continued progress, we must engage in critical conversations across campus to understand how our different experiences and perspectives can generate innovative and inclusive solutions. We welcome these conversations and hope to have an open, ongoing dialogue with the students, faculty, staff and community we serve.
