Diverse Learning Environment
The result: Students are better prepared to be effective contributors in today's multicultural society. Parkside's classroom environment promotes individualized attention that speaks to both traditional and nontraditional students.
With demographic changes, and societal challenges, it is critical, now more than ever, that college students learn with and from diverse peers. That’s a major reason why Parkside is proud to be the most diverse campus in the UW System. The true distinction, however, comes in the success of our students.
Since inception, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion has identified goals and objectives to strengthen outreach, educational, and research initiatives in order to ensure that the university remains recognized for providing a diverse living, working, and learning environment.
The university remains committed to making excellence inclusive, and providing the curriculum, policies, financial resources, collaboration skills, experiences, and assessments necessary to continue to prepare graduates to lead in a global society. But even more, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion helps provide academic and other programs and services to connect our students, faculty, staff, and alumni, to our local, regional, national and global communities.
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion leads UW-Parkside’s vision for an equitable, civil, and just community and works with faculty staff, and students to implement our strategic diversity initiatives.
