Department of Immunology

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We hold diversity and inclusiveness as core values in our department and emphasize their importance throughout our research, education, recruitment and practice. We strive to create a climate that fosters belonging, respect and value for all within our scientific community and the institution. We are committed to prioritizing and advancing diversity, equity and inclusion in all its forms within our climate and will continue to strive to achieve these goals as outlined in the UW Diversity Blueprint:

  • Cultivate an Inclusive Climate,
  • Attract, Retain, and Graduate a Diverse and Excellent Student Body,
  • Attract and Retain a Diverse Faculty,
  • Attract and Retain a Diverse Staff,
  • Assess Departmental Diversity Needs, and
  • Improve Accountability and Transparency

We work together to organize events that cultivate and strengthen departmental diversity and inclusion, and welcome involvement and input. The department conducts a bi-annual climate survey and responds to the needs and opportunities that arise.

To get involved, or if you have questions, please contact members of our Immunology Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee.
