Equity & Inclusion Advisory Board

The mission of the UC Berkeley Equity & Inclusion Advisory Board is to provide advice and support to the UC Berkeley Vice Chancellor for Equity & Inclusion and help guide the implementation of the ten-year UC Berkeley Strategic Plan for Equity, Inclusion and Diversity.

The top strategic goals of this plan are:

  1. responsive research, teaching, and public service;
  2. expanded pathways for access and success;
  3. engaging and healthy campus climate.

The Board will guide Equity & Inclusion in the areas of advocacy, advancement and program development.  It will provide a mechanism for accountability on institutional change and advice on the evolving Strategic Plan. It will assist in building networks of broad support beyond the campus, and helping the division increase its philanthropic resources. The Vice Chancellor will convene this select group three times a year.  We expect that the Advisory Board may have multiple areas of focus and that these areas of focus may change in priority over time.
