We aim to foster inclusive excellence by creating an environment where every WashU community member can reach their full potential. We want every person who studies, teaches, or works on our campuses to have the resources they need in order to succeed, learn and grow.
By developing awareness and understanding of our own perceptions and impact, we aim to create a more inclusive community.
