Welcome to the Diversity and Equity Center
The Diversity and Equity cultivates a sense of belonging and community on campus through programs and initiatives that encourage students to explore their identities, challenge barriers and empower themselves and their communities.
Central Washington University honors the native people and land on which CWU is located in Kittitas County. It is the historic home of the Yakama people. The federally recognized Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation is made of the Klikitat, Palus, Wallawalla, Wanapum, Wenatchi, Wishram, and Yakama People.
The Yakama people remain committed stewards of this land, cherishing it and protecting it, as instructed by elders through generations. We are honored and grateful to be here today on their traditional lands. We give thanks to the legacy of the original people, their lives, and their descendents.
Learn more about this acknowledgment and how to honor Native and Indigenous peoples by visiting the Office of Diversity & Inclusivity.
