The College of Built Environments remains committed to supporting you, our students, through these challenging times that have surfaced as a result of the pandemic and the ensuing economic hardship. As part of our support initiatives for students, we have created this page which is intended for students to submit requests for stipends (capped at $300) to help with needs such as technology*, transportation, textbooks, etc. All undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled in a CBE Major are eligible to apply here.

The appointments are over the phone, and are limited to 10 minutes in order to serve as many students as we can. You will need your UW NetID to access the scheduling page.

CBE EDI Focus Groups – Summary Report

The College of Built Environments launched a college-wide initiative on equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). EDI has been identified as one of the key priorities for the college, the University and professional communities. The EDI initiative is a partnership with the University’s Office of Minority and Diversity and Undergraduate Academic Affairs. The University hopes to learn from the CBE approach and create a model for achieving University-wide goals on equity and diversity.

The initiative is focused on measuring and building intercultural competency across the College. Intercultural competence is the ability to accurately understand and effectively adapt to differences. It reflects the degree to which differences in values, expectations, beliefs, and behaviors are effectively bridged in order to achieve learning, research, and workplace objectives. This approach to EDI has been shown to be one of the most effective ways to achieve EDI goals and has been adopted globally across sectors and higher education institutions.

A summary of the initiative and its components are summarized in the appendix to this report. This report provides an interim summary and key points from the focus groups.
