President Ana Mari Cauce Discusses Racial Inclusion and Equity with Evans School Students

On February 25, President Ana Mari Cauce visited the Evans School’s Race and Equity in Policy and Governance class (PUBPOL 572), an elective for first-year MPA students. In her interview with Associate Professor Crystal Hall, she highlighted the University of Washington’s institutional initiatives to promote racial equity, as well as her personal and professional path to leadership in that area. In a dynamic Q&A following the interview, students were interested in how President Cauce balances the institutional focus on racial equity with other types of diversity; her recommendations for combating impostor syndrome; and, how the UW creates accountability for the academic units to meet goals of racial inclusion and equity.

Thank you, President Cauce, for having an open dialogue with our students on such an important topic.
