Diversity & Climate

UWM's diversity action initiatives are rooted in UW System's Plan 2008 and the Milwaukee Commitment Phase 2 document. Reports from the Task Forces on Race and Ethnicity and on the Climate for Women have demonstrated the priority of making further progress on our diversity goals. The implementation status of UWM's diversity initiatives is being tracked as a key element of Access to Success and in the UWM Equity Scorecard, a UW System pilot project.

UWM's diversity initiatives have the common purpose of enhancing the diversity of our student body, faculty, and staff; improving the learning and retention of students of color; and maintaining the important access role that UWM plays in the Milwaukee community.
