  • It's On Us: Chancellor, Students Pledge to Take Stand Against Sexual Assault

    On October 8, 2015, Chancellor Gillman reminded the UCI community that "It's On Us, all of us, to engage as active bystanders to prevent sex offenses in our community and to report sex offenses to the Office of Equal Opportunity & Diversity (OEOD) when they occur." Last year, UCI unveiled a sexual offense information website for faculty, staff and students to learn more about campus policies and how to identify and report an offense; the site also provides resources for victims.

UC Irvine Advancing Inclusive Excellence
The University of California has continuously stated its commitment to advancing inclusive excellence. A UC Diversity Statement was adopted by the Academic Senate and by the UC Regents. To support these efforts, the University of California recently developed Guidelines For Addressing Race and Gender Equity in Academic Programs in Compliance with Proposition 209. For more information, go to the UC Diversity website or the UC Irvine Diversity website.
