Why We Do This Work: The Numbers

California is one of the most diverse states in the nation with its diversity ever-growing. UC Berkeley's Strategic Plan for Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity states as a goal to "[c]reate a critical mass of talented students [...] that will fully represent California’s excellence and diversity." At present, UC Berkeley does not represent the diversity of the state. Part of the work of the Division of Equity & Inclusion is to help redress this lack of representation at UC Berkeley.



African American, Chicano/Latino, Native American/Alaska Native, Pacific Islander, and undergraduate students with disabilities are represented on campus at far lower levels (often less than half) than they are across the state.
