Undergraduate Diversity Services

Undergrad diversity services team

Students participating in UDS programs have access to dedicated staff and a community of peers and alumni committed to lifting others as they climb themselves. Pictured here (L-R) are Damariz Ibáñez (YEOC Program Manager) and Zach McKinlay (UDS Program Manager).

The University of Washington Michael G. Foster School of Business is committed to recruiting and retaining a diverse student body by creating a culture of respect which values diversity, equity and inclusion.

The Undergraduate Diversity Services (UDS) Office mission is to serve as a holistic resource for students from backgrounds historically underrepresented in the greater business community. These groups of students include those of minority, economically disadvantaged and first generation backgrounds.

The UDS Office provides programs and opportunities to support underrepresented students achieve academic and personal success in the undergraduate business program. In collaboration with partners around the Foster School, we strive to ensure UDS students graduate prepared to enter the corporate workforce as leaders and change agents. UDS pipeline programs are designed to target high school, community college, UW pre-majors, and business students.
