Hello UW Huskies, prospective Huskies, family members, and community friends!
With more than a dozen departments and programs ranging from first-generation initiatives to career services and from on-campus housing, recreation, and student financial aid to the veterans and military resource center, the student affairs division focuses on student success. We care deeply about our students' wellbeing and endeavor to co-create a student ready community where students establish meaningful connections with each other and faculty, staff, and alumni.
This year, we are excited to carefully restore in-person instruction and activities. The U-Dub Tacoma Pack is Back, and we remain steadfast in our commitment to expand access to a university education, promote civic engagement, and facilitate career readiness. I invite you to engage with our campus and explore the many opportunities that we have to offer.
Be Purple. Be Gold. Be Bold. Go Dawgs!
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
Campus COVID INFORMATION
As we move through the 2021-2022 academic year, we have compiled important information for members of our campus community.
The Division of Student Affairs recognizes the value of diverse living, learning, and working environments. Therefore, amid a challenging 2020, the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and the Student Affairs Executive Leadership Team reaffirmed a commitment to identify and address inequities and co-create a campus environment that is welcoming and respectful for all.
The immediate goals include (pending alignment with additional initiatives on campus led by the Center for Equity and Inclusion):
Regularly assess and assert our commitment to cultivate an inclusive, equity-minded, and anti-racist campus community through education, reflection, and action.
Provide opportunities for staff at all levels to engage in programming and professional development focused on equity, inclusion, diversity, and belonging.
Utilize the annual Performance Review system as a tool for evaluation of staff and their understanding and application of diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism frameworks.
Engage the Student Affairs staff in developing a Strategic Plan (2022-2026) and implementing yearly metrics for measuring progress and success.
