Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Cultivating open, collaborative environments where everyone can work, learn, and flourish. It’s more than an ideal; it’s a clear strategy for helping our students, partners, neighbors, and employees succeed in an increasingly interconnected world, backed by the efforts of the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (OEDI). Our dedicated team partners with offices and individuals throughout our institutions to serve, educate, and protect the people of UW Colleges and UW-Extension, and strengthen the multicultural communities that make both the university and state of Wisconsin great.

Mission

We’re driven to support institutional fairness, provide equitable access to opportunities and resources, ensure university-wide compliance with system, state, and federal protections, and help prevent and address discrimination, harassment, and violence.
 

Programs & Services

We’re investing in our communities with programs and services that connect with underrepresented populations, encourage multicultural awareness, provide essential training and resources, and ensure safe, welcoming, and respectful learning and working environments for all.
