Our roles in the space of student support here within Humanities Academic Services must always be centered in practices that engage our students who must navigate higher education through marginalized experiences. With this work, we must always be willing to grow and adapt our practices to meet the needs of our students.

We are open to feedback from our students to better our practices and we want to be transparent to all Humanities students, specifically those of marginalized identities, so that you are all aware that this a process and we are always willing to make necessary change. To make a start, we've collected resources that can help underrepresented and marginalized Humanities students at UW into the sections below.

If the structure does not permit dialogue, the structure must be changed.

Inclusive Resources on Campus

We have compiled some of the resources located on campus where students can receive support, find and build community, and exist in a safe space. 


Registered Student Organizations (RSOs)

RSO's are spaces where students feel they can engage in discussion with like-minded peers and scholars based on their experiences within higher education. 


Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity

For further resources and support as a student who identifies as Black, Indigenous, or other student of color, we recommend connecting with The Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity (OMAD).
