Diversity & Inclusion Statement

UWL is committed to earning the trust and support of our campus community as we work to provide a safe, equitable, and welcoming environment for our students, faculty, and staff. We know that current events can sometimes trigger strong emotions; therefore, it is crucial that we support one another by leveraging our relationships with each other. 

At UWL, we lean on each other for care, support, and growth. You may be wondering what we, as a predominantly white campus, can do to support each other regardless of the identities we hold.   

  • Recommit to making our campus as safe and welcoming as we can for historically excluded students. We do this by encouraging our community members to appropriately address campus climate issues in our classrooms, recreation, wellness, research, policies, and procedures. 

  • Participate in opportunities that will expand our knowledge of global citizenship and allow us to share and connect with the lived experiences of one another. 

  • Have honest, forthright conversations with one another about safety, trust, and belonging that are dependent on our identities.  

  • Become an upstander. When you see wrong or an act of injustice or intolerance – take action. One way to take action is to contact someone who can help with the situation. Another way is through the campus hate/bias reporting form. 

  • Come together to uplift and support one another. By striving to create change, have difficult conversations and confront racial injustice, we have the power to overcome any force that seeks to divide us. We hope you’ll join us in that effort. 

To our Black and brown faculty, staff, and students, your experiences and feeling are valid. We are here to support you. Please feel free to reach out to the following offices:
