Advisory Council on Campus Climate, Culture and Inclusion
At the March 2010 Regents' meeting, President Yudof pledged to take steps to directly address campus climate issues that leave students feeling marginalized; to promote the identification and sharing of best practices that promote diversity and tolerance; to monitor progress on the campuses; and to provide effective oversight.
The President appointed a systemwide Advisory Council on Campus Climate, Culture and Inclusion and asked each campus Chancellor to chair and appoint a multi-constituency Council to advise the Chancellor and, as appropriate, the campus community.
Chancellor Blumenthal has appointed a campus Advisory Council on Campus Climate, Culture and Inclusion that includes faculty, staff, students, community members and alumni.
The charge of the UCSC Council is to:
- Monitor and evaluate the progress of UCSC in creating conditions of climate, culture and inclusion that will best support the mission of the University and provide equal opportunities to all UCSC students, faculty and staff.
- Identify, evaluate and share “promising practices” in efforts to create a welcoming and inclusive campus climate—looking broadly at other institutions, both public and private, inside and outside higher education, across the state and the nation.

From January 16th through February 20th, 2013, the campus participated in the University of California systemwide study about campus climate. The first phase involved a survey to collect input from the entire UC community about the learning, living, and working environments for students, faculty, and staff.
