University Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Committee


Please complete this Diversity Action Plan Survey : 

This survey provides the WOU campus community an opportunity provide feedback on goals and priorities related to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion. It has been created by the University Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Committee (UDIAC). We want to know what you think should be included in the Diversity Action Plan. This is not an official campus climate survey but will be very helpful in shaping UDIAC’s recommendations to the WOU Board of Trustees.
