WIDE's purpose is to enable Whitman's diversity, equity and inclusion considerations to become more proactive and strategic.

The council will engage in a campus climate study, collecting data on faculty, staff, student and administrator perspectives on diversity, and will help generate and define the initial stages of the college's diversity plan.
