Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Department of Music Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Statement:

The UW Department of Music strives to expand students’ knowledge and experience by offering diversity of content in all aspects of musical life, through teaching and performances, seeking to add range and depth to the existing canon of great music, in all its forms.

  1. The faculty will consider a wide variety of factors when evaluating potential repertoire and content. These include, but are not limited to: diversity of repertoire to enrich students’ development in applied lessons, programing of diverse repertoire for ensembles, use of diversity of content in classroom materials, presentation of faculty performances that reflect the Music Department’s commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in programing.

  2. Reasonable effort will be made to solicit suggestions and comments from students, in the initial stages of program planning, and course outlining. Student input will be gathered from the student advisory committee, as well as from an end-of-year survey. Survey results will be shared with the faculty at large, allowing adequate time for consideration of programing for the following academic year. All student suggestions are non-binding, and will be evaluated for potential alignment with the aforementioned aspirations. 

  1. Material that might be perceived as racist, sexist, homophobic, etc., should be carefully considered before inclusion. If such works are selected, the faculty member (instructor, director) will document how the chosen material will provide educational opportunities and lead to a discussion of historical, political, and cultural issues.
