The Social Sciences at Berkeley are thriving precisely because, as a public university, we bring together faculty, students, and staff who represent the rich diversity of California, the United States, and the world. Not only is our division the most diverse on campus by any measure, but our members are committed to upholding the university’s principles of community so that every individual can be successful in a healthy, welcoming, and safe environment. In this spirit, our division continues to work toward expanding opportunities for students from historically underrepresented groups, first-generation students, women, and veterans, among others, to help them achieve their academic and professional goals. Additional information on campus-wide initiatives, including programs tailored for undergraduate and graduate students, can be found on the website of the Division of Equity & Inclusion(link is external).
Please contact Associate Dean, Khatharya Um with any questions about the Social Sciences Division’s ongoing efforts in diversity, equity, and inclusion.
