A number of diversity initiatives have been started and maintained by the Graduate Division that work with diversity outreach, recruitment, and retention. There are many layers of involvement that include graduate students, postdocs, staff, and faculty.
UC San Diego Graduate Diversity Coordinators are department and program representatives within the UCSD community that are committed to recruiting diverse students.
The Tribal Membership Initiative is a new endeavor by UC San Diego's Graduate Division to increase diversity, by providing fellowships to incoming graduate students from Native American, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian ancestry.
The Diversity Outreach Collaboration is an effort between UC San Diego faculty, staff, post docs, and graduate students to create a more comprehensive diversity outreach strategy.
