12/08/2015 I am proud to be a part of a university that tackles the hard issues. University of Washington President Ana Mari Cauce is leading a new effort, called the Race and Equity Iniative. It is a tri-campus project that will ensure access and academic success for students from diverse populations. Moreover, it challenges us all to have important conversations in areas of social importance. Please read the new provost report on trends and issues in higher education focuses on race and advancing equity. It will inform the important work we do at UW Bothell.
