Our Mission

The mission of the Office of Equity/Diversity Services (EDS) is to effectively integrate equal opportunity and diversity into UWM’s institutional climate. UWM’s policies provide equal opportunity in admissions, employment, educational programs, and activities without regard to race, color, religion, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status.

EDS is dedicated to preventing discrimination and guiding institutional compliance with applicable federal and state laws. Through educational programs, the investigation and resolution of complaints, and oversight activities, EDS fosters an environment and culture that appreciates all members of the UWM community.
