This moment in history has emphasized our nation’s need of a movement for racial justice. UC San Diego’s campus resource centers, programs, and equity, diversity and inclusion initiatives are an integral part of that movement as they promote inclusion and build affinity among a diverse population of students, faculty, and staff members. These resources provide access and social mobility for our growing community and contribute significantly to a socially just campus. Some of the resources on campus leading the way include:
Racial Equality and Justice Fund
Black Academic Excellence Initiative
Latinx Academic Excellence Initiative
Asian Pacific Islander Middle Eastern Desi American Programs and Services
Black Resource Center
Intertribal Resource Center
LGBT Resource Center
Raza Resource Centro
The Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion’s greatest reward is our community members feeling that UC San Diego is a place where they can flourish – in all of their full identities. However, true “inclusion” is never done. We continue to learn, grow, and create conditions for students, faculty and staff to succeed, and our resource centers, programs, and the Racial Equality and Justice Fund greatly assist us in the considerable work that still needs to be done.
Your gift matters, and will advance UC San Diego as a destination, where self-awareness is learned, academic excellence is supported, leaders are developed, and open dialogue is encouraged. Your support is a compassionate gift that empowers those who seek wellness and belonging, and pushes our movement for racial justice forward.
