The Office for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is excited to announce our 2018-19 ODEI Dialogue Series!

This year, we plan on hosting 6 events in the series, aimed at bringing students, faculty and staff together to hold discussions and meaningful community dialogue around various topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion.

The overall goal of this series is to have productive and honest discussions, oftentimes about challenging subject matter, to continue to build and foster a healthy campus climate. We hope to provide our UCSC community with tangible “takeaways” and “best practices” that they can put to good use.

The ODEI Dialogue Series has been developed to achieve the following learning objectives for participants:
  • Experience interacting respectfully with members of the campus community whose approaches to issues differ
  • Identify potential partners and collaborators across campus
  • Explore creative solutions to concerns, questions and issues
  • Understand how individuals’ experiences at UCSC are complex and multilayered
  • Hone critical skills to build communities of support
  • Learn about various support resources on and off campus
