Diversity and Community Building Study

UCSC’s Diversity and Community Building Study is sponsored by Chancellor’s Advisory Council on Campus Climate, Culture and Inclusion, the Office for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and Institutional Research and Policy Studies. It began in spring 2011 with two online surveys of the entire student body, with one focusing on undergraduate students and the other on graduate students. Faculty and staff surveys are tentatively scheduled for Fall 2011.

The study’s main goals are to evaluate the university’s existing culture and institutional support of all members of our campus community, and to provide valuable information for improvement of everyday practices, policy decisions and other community-building efforts. The surveys include questions on campus-wide climate for diversity and inclusion.
