Leading work that transforms UC Berkeley’s ecosystem of services, opportunities, and experiences for all students, staff, and faculty.
The Division of Equity & Inclusion works to reshape and influence policies and practices that increase opportunities, advance social justice, and create equitable experiences for all students, staff, and faculty.
We lead responsive work that connects systematically marginalized students, staff, and faculty to an ecosystem of supports, resources, and community-building opportunities across campus.
We serve as an anchor point for a network of Thriving Initiatives that promote equity-based, anti-racist, and anti-oppressive values and approaches as throughlines in all aspects of campus life, including recruitment, admissions, teaching, learning, advising, research, and professional development.
From dedicated scholarships to leadership programs, these initiatives give underrepresented students a chance to expand their knowledge and horizons. These programs also encourage students to build community and, most importantly, see themselves represented across campus and beyond.
Through the Thriving Initiatives, we are creating a home for all future and current students, staff, and faculty to feel welcome at UC Berkeley. Regardless of your experience and background, we are here to help you thrive. Learn more today.
