Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
University Dining Services Partners with WWU on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
As your dining provider, we are proud to offer our support to WWU, the campus community, and the student body to support initiatives that are meaningful to your diversity, equity, and inclusion objectives. University Dining Services is committed to working with WWU’s Black Student Organizations, along with student groups representing other oppressed and marginalized identities.
