Our commitment to inclusion and diversity

Diversity is a core value and priority of the University of Washington Bothell. We are committed to engaging in an ongoing process of identifying and confronting ways in which institutional discrimination may inhibit the lives and education of groups that have been minoritized in our society and on our campus. As embodied in our Diversity Action Plan, we are committed to holding ourselves accountable for inclusive and transformational institutional change. We believe that the experiences and conditions of the most marginalized groups in our communities must be at the center of our institutional growth and improvement so that we may leverage the power of diversity to create conditions of equity, justice, and academic excellence for everyone.


Terryl Ross, Ph.D. is the director of diversity at UW Bothell. Terryl is a proud UW alumnus, scholar, activist and filmmaker. Learn more about Dr. Terryl Ross.
