At the top of every page of Western's websites is a link to "Report Bias."

Other services and offices at Western that are part of the network of resources assisting in the ADEI efforts include:


  1. Convene at the direction of the Dean to select a Chair, discuss the potential scope of work, and share insights already gained at the department level.
  2. Identify those issues that are best addressed at the College level (e.g., scholarships, hiring of faculty and staff) for further review.
  3. Inventory current ADEI efforts and programs within the College (e.g., targeted recruitment).
  4. Assist the Dean in planning ADEI initiatives (e.g., Black History Month).
  5. Consider best practices from other universities and organizations.
  6. Encourage robust and frank conversations within the CFPA community (e.g., listening sessions with small groups).
  7. Maintain a webpage or shared digital space that documents the Committee’s work.
  8. Submit a draft ADEI plan to the Dean with short and long-term goals and aspirations by the end of the Spring Quarter.
  9. The draft ADEI plan will be reviewed by the CFPA Faculty Governance Council at the beginning of Fall Quarter.

We acknowledge that the work we do is on the unceded and traditional territories of The Coast Salish Peoples, and many other First Nations. This acknowledgment does not take the place of authentic relationships with indigenous communities, but serves as a first step in honoring the land we occupy. Please continue to learn more about the true stewarts of the area Western Washington University is facilitated from.
