We provide DEI resources that help create a welcoming campus for everyone.

Equity-mindedness workshops and tools are available for academic and administrative units. We support coalition building among affinity groups. Because formal and informal mentoring is essential for career advancement, we offer ongoing opportunities for employees to build skills and broaden their network. 

Affinity groups are formed by employees based on a shared identity or common goal. They are not part of UWM’s formal governance structure, but they bring together employees with similar backgrounds or interests and help foster a greater sense of community and support.

Systemic racism and biases continue to impact our society today. Developed in the fall of 2020, the UWM Racial Justice & Equity Program asks employees to examine our own racial socialization and its impact on decisions we make in everyday life. The program calls for a campus community of active advocates against racial injustices and inequities.
