The increasingly dynamic student body, academic curricula, and accessible resources at UCSB is a result of the ongoing advocacy for diversity by members of the UCSB community. These efforts help to shape how UCSB defines the principles, practices, and commitments we share towards creating and maintaining a diverse campus.
While strides in diversity strengthen the academic impact of the campus, benefiting from our diversity means going beyond just having it. Rather, benefiting from diversity in meaningful and equitable ways requires intentional and ongoing work as a campus to continue welcoming and supporting diversity. Providing high quality learning remains central to this endeavor, and instructors are at the forefront of shaping student learning experiences in ways that make the diversity at UCSB matter in the classroom.
