The University of Washington and The Information School 

The University of Washington is a vibrant crucible of inclusive research and community outreach, situated between the Puget Sound and Lake Washington, in the city of Seattle, on the traditional territories of the Coast Salish peoples. Seattle is a rapidly growing, dynamic, and diverse metropolitan area.  

The UW Information School is dedicated to hiring people that will enhance diversity and equal opportunity in higher education. As information systems and institutions serve increasingly diverse and global constituencies, it is vital to understand the ways in which differences in gender, class, race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, national and cultural boundaries, national origin, worldview, intellectual origin, and other identities can both divide us and offer us better ways of thinking and working. The Information School is committed to preparing professionals who work in an increasingly diverse and global society by promoting equity and justice for all individuals, actively working to eliminate barriers and obstacles created by institutional discrimination.
