Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Initiatives

Online Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Education

In partnership with UC Santa Cruz and UC Davis, we are excited to announce that beginning Fall 2018, all incoming undergraduate students will complete an online module on the topics of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. This new online module will be packaged with the new student requirements of AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention education that students have been required to complete in previous years. 


Many of our student groups and community members have asked for increased attention to and education on these critical topics. This module, created by EverFi through extensive engagement with each of the UC campuses and subject matter experts worldwide, is designed to be a brief orientation to a lifetime of learning about, engaging with, and respectfully discussing identities.

I  UCSB  - Leaders Educating and Advancing Dialogue (LEAD)

The Dean of Students Office is excited to announce a partnership with the National Conflict Resolution Center (NCRC) to increase our education offerings for our student leaders. As part of the requirements for campus organizations registration, one officer from each organization must attend the IUCSB LEAD Workshop. This interactive workshop helps participants explore their own personal and cultural identity and learn how it relates to communication style; how these different styles can sometimes be the root of communication breakdown; and, most importantly, how they can learn to recognize when a communication breakdown is happening and do something about it.

The Dean of Students equity and inclusion initiatives rely on the generous support and collaboration with numerous campus partners. We would like to thank and acknowledge the support of Housing, Dining, and Auxiliary Enterprises, Associated Students, the Multicultural Center, Educational Opportunity Programs, Recreation, and the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.
