“Diversity is a source of strength, creativity, and innovation for UW-Madison.
We value the contributions of each person and respect the profound ways
their identity, culture, background, experience, status, abilities, and opinion
enrich the university community.”
We are committed to creating a welcoming and engaging environment
that encourages open dialogue to better our scholarship,

and to apply those ideas in service of the health and wellness
of all individuals in our community.
We are dedicated to implementing practices, procedures, and structures
that foster the integration of ideas from all members,
and believe this commitment elevates the quality and value of all discourse.
