An Inclusive Community Where All Have Opportunity to Thrive

At UC San Diego you will find an academic environment that encourages you to follow your intellectual curiosity and to pursue opportunities to make an impact in your own unique way. At our university, we recognize that true excellence is achieved when we feel respected for our perspective, background and heritage. We should all feel included in campus life and experience equitable opportunity in achieving our aspirations. The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion team is dedicated to providing leadership to help achieve this goal.
