The Office of Global Affairs works collaboratively to foster cultural humility and build globally-interconnected communities by promoting global learning opportunities on and off-campus, building international partnerships, and supporting international students, scholars, and research at the University of Washington Tacoma.
In our work, we are committed to the following values:
We promote diversity, equity, and inclusion through programming that recognizes, explores, and honors the cultural assets, histories, and lived experiences of our campus communities.
We practice cultural humility by acknowledging and celebrating differences, engaging in critical self-reflection, and redressing power inequities.
We extend equitable access to global education for all of our students with experiences such as international exchanges and study abroad programs.
We aspire to be actively anti-racist in our practices, policies, and programs.
We strive to provide exceptional services and programs that empower students, faculty, and staff to achieve their goals.
OGA approaches our partners with respect and prioritizes mutually beneficial collaborations with partners across the University, our local communities, and internationally.
