The University of Washington is committed to recruiting and retaining a diverse faculty and staff. Affinity groups are supported by the UW as a way to advance this commitment. Organizations in higher education and the corporate sector have used affinity groups as a way to build community and to improve recruitment and retention of diverse talent.

If you interested in building community or fostering connections with other faculty and staff at the UW, we invite you to get involved with one of our faculty and staff affinity groups.
