From the Diversity At UW-Whitewater website:
We desire a reputation as an institution that truly values and nurtures diverse intellectual, cultural, creative and service opportunities. To accomplish that, we must promote our image as a diverse, respected and empowering institution of higher learning. We must attract and support students from all parts of the region, nation and world, sustaining optimum enrollment, retention and graduation rates for all student populations. We must create and maintain programs for intercultural or international study, research and service in every department. Finally, we must develop, attract and retain a diverse faculty and staff.
