The interests in diversity of faculty and students of UW Psychology take many forms. We seek to promote diversity and cultural competence in research, teaching, professional training, and representation among faculty and students. We are working to increase participation by members of under-represented or disadvantaged groups in our programs and in the science, practice, and teaching of psychology. We seek ways to facilitate the optimal development of people from groups that have been historically disadvantaged or oppressed. We are also working to develop UW Psychology as a center for research on Diversity Science. As part of this effort, the Diversity Science group has established an interdisciplinary seminar series of local and invited speakers.
