At the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences, we are committed to promoting respect for the rights and privileges of all, understanding and appreciating human differences and the constructive expression of ideas. We actively advocate for diversity in our faculty, staff and students.

With broad input and endorsement from Environmental and Forest Sciences faculty, we annually develop a school-specific diversity plan to increase the diversity of the graduate student population. Our plan for the next academic year is posted each January following a faculty vote.

Any students who anticipate or experience barriers to learning or full participation in a course based on a physical, learning or mental health disability should immediately contact the instructor to discuss possible accommodation(s). If a student has, or thinks they have, a temporary or permanent disability that impacts  participation in any course, please also contact Disability Resources for Students (DRS) at: 206-543-8924 V / 206-543-8925 TDD or
