"Student Services' commitment to diversity resonates in a climate of trust among all members of the campus community.  We harness the vitality of individuals in our community to achieve mutual respect, dignity and a communal sense of purpose to work toward a unified tomorrow."
- Student Services

Strategic Initiatives:

  1. Expand Student Services advocacy roles, and reinforce our campus community's commitment to notions of inclusion and social equity.

  2. Develop a shared understanding of diversity and inclusion within Student Services

  3. Foster and maintain a culture of accountability for performance in cultural competence, diversity, and inclusion.  

  4. Ensure all policies and procedures pertaining to hiring, onboarding, professional development, and managing stuff within Student Services is conducive to providing and maintaining a respectful, equitable, and culturally sensitive workplace environment.

  5. Establish and maintain a "culture of evidence" for our efforts in nurturing diversity and inclusion.   

We respect, recognize and celebrate the differences and similarities that students bring to the campus community. A truly diverse and inclusive community benefits all students, staff and faculty. We are committed to holding ourselves accountable to be culturally competent and socially responsible for the cultural campus climate. We provide information and resources devoted to issues of diversity, inclusion, social equity, multiculturalism, as well as all notions of human social differences and similarities. We explore human "similarities", not to dilute the importance of historical underpinnings, but to help understand our human interconnections despite continued cultural discord. We expect every member of the campus to practice the UCSC Principles of Community and to consider The University of California Diversity Statement.
