  • Diversity Compact III Report | Diversity at the University of Washington
    success of students from diverse backgrounds at the University of Washington Several efforts during the past year have addressed this broad objective Highlights of key retention efforts during the 2002 2003 academic year include the following This past summer Undergraduate Advising and OMA D Counseling jointly planned and hosted the registration and orientation of all new incoming freshmen and transfer students This joint effort was designed to expose new students to the various resources that are available for diverse students on the UW campus Earlier this year the Health Sciences Center Minority Student Program became part of the Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity a move that will enhance retention efforts for underrepresented students who are working in Health Sciences related fields This new partnership between OMA D and the Health Sciences Administration will provide comprehensive support to students working in Health Sciences majors and those students who wish to pursue advanced graduate and professional degrees in these fields This year the College of Engineering reorganized its diversity programs to enhance outreach and retention efforts in the College s various academic departments Program such as MESA ALVA and MSEP will continue to serve students under a more streamlined organizational structure In the coming months the Dean of Engineering will announce the hiring of a new person who will coordinate all diversity programming for the College Another exciting initiative is the establishment of the Sonnenblick Del Rio Global Citizens Scholarship that is intended to support EOP students who have an interest in studying abroad to expand and deepen their understanding of other peoples and cultures and to prepare students to actively participate in addressing world wide human economic and health challenges of the 21st century The award is intended to cover the costs of any study abroad program travel expenses and related costs up to 3 000 This past year the Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity launched a series of diversity talks and workshops that focused on specific aspects of the retention experience of underrepresented students on the University of Washington campus The audience for these presentations included the Faculty Fellows the UW Minority Community Advisory Board and key administrators at the Provost s Workshops on Minority Retention In addition OMA D produced a series of reports that highlighted the Summer Bridge Program and a study on retention covering the period between 1992 and 2002 This report entitled Descriptive and Longitudinal Analyses of Enrollment Graduation and Retention Data for UW Seattle also identifies those departments that have made substantial progress in increasing minority representation in their majors and those department that are providing the necessary support to get students through graduation This type of analyses will serve as the foundation for the development of a research center that will focus on issues of diversity in the coming years The Pacific Islander Partnership in Education PIPE program was recognized with the 2003 Brotman Award for Diversity PIPE provides cultural and educational support for Pacific Islanders allowing these students to have a successful academic experience at the UW Dr Rick Bonus Associate Professor of American Ethnic Studies has provided strong leadership to students in these efforts Another important development this year is the appointment of a new Assistant Dean for Multicultural Affairs in the UW School of Medicine Dr David Acosta Dr Acosta will be responsible for increasing diversity enrollment in the School of Medicine as well as enhancing programming to support future minority medical professionals The continuation of the Graduate Opportunities and Minority Achievement Program GO MAP Getting Connected events which allows new and current graduate students to build community and learn about resources on campus that can facilitate completion of their degrees Several graduate students in the Department of Astronomy have developed a working paper that focuses on ways to increase diversity and build the Astronomy pipeline at the UW This is an exciting development that will allow more underrepresented students at the undergraduate and graduate level to consider careers in Astronomy Back to Top Part III Climate Climate encompasses the learning working social and cultural environments of the University of Washington It also includes the University s relationship with the surrounding community We reaffirm our commitment to work together to build on the actions of Diversity Compacts I and II that are designed to improve campus climate The University will expand its efforts to make the UW a more open and inviting place for all students faculty staff and alumni recognizing that this requires a sustained long term commitment and continuous evaluation of the campus climate Collaboration between various campus units and departments has provided a strong fabric on which to build a climate that is supportive for all Noteworthy events and accomplishments during the 2002 2003 academic year included The Center for Curriculum Transformation continues to fund faculty development aimed at creating more courses that teach students to think critically about issues of diversity This year s call for proposals emphasized courses that examine US diversity in a global perspective A new and important project established by the Center is the Learning We Need Project which assists undergraduate students in developing knowledge skills and behaviors for working and living in a society characterized by great economic social political religious and cultural diversity The continuation of the GO MAP and Gates Millennium Scholars Recognition Dinner This event features recipients of GO MAP fellowships their advisors and donors to the program Funds for the Gates Millennium Scholars program are provided through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation The program helps competitive African American American Indian Alaska Natives Asian Americans Pacific Islanders and Hispanic Latino students to attend college as undergraduates and helps underrepresented students pursue graduate degrees in mathematics science engineering education or library science The College of Arts Sciences conducted a special workshop led by Harvard Professor Lani Guinier for senior administrators on strategies to diversify the faculty This workshop has initiated discussions that may lead to the formation of a Task Force to explore future strategies for diversifying
