ITS Diversity Resources

"We embrace diversity in all its forms and we strive for an inclusive community that fosters an open, enlightened and productive environment." UCSC Principles of Community

The University of California is committed to achieving excellence through diversity in the classroom, research lab and the workplace. It strives to establish a climate that welcomes, celebrates, and promotes respect for the contributions of all students and employees. 


Welcome to the ITS Division Diversity Resources Site. In our commitment to diversity, we welcome people from all backgrounds and we seek to include knowledge and values from many cultures. 

Our goal to work toward an environment that values diversity requires that we create, promote, and maintain activities and programs that further our understanding of individual and group diversity. This Site was designed to provide ITS staff greater access to diversity resources. Numerous programs already exist at UCSC that demonstrates the campus commitment to diversity.

If you have any questions or suggested diversity resources for this site, please contact Magge McCue.
