The Diversity Education Initiative supports WSU’s strategic goal of creating an environment of trust and respect by building internal expertise in managing difference, conflict and change. The Diversity Education Team leads the initiative through educational training, dialogue, study circles, conflict resolution and other

The Diversity Education Initiative facilitates open communication and learning about all kinds of human difference; fosters respectful and culturally competent interchange and dialogue among all members of the WSU community; and reduces barriers, which hinder those goals through outreach, education, and training.

The DEI supports WSU's central value of diversity by building internal expertise in difference, conflict, and change. The Diversity Education Team facilitates changes through many vehicles of learning, including study circles, training, public conversations, conflict resolution, exercises, and dialogue to begin learning.

1. We recognize that each individual has infinite dignity and worth.
2. We seek to create learning communities at every level of the institution, which empower learners to make change.
3. We understand that change requires commitment, perseverance, training, and support to be successful.
4. We facilitate an inclusive, responsive, evolving process, which draws on many people's experiences and insights.
