Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Practices
This page describes practices of our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion mission, which is an ongoing, long-term effort. Our program’s practices include:
The DEI Committee consists of at least four faculty members of the Group and at least four PSPG students. The goals of this committee are to combat intolerance and implicit bias and create a more equitable, inclusive and supportive environment for graduate students within the program and across UCSF. Students and faculty members spearhead two task forces: 1) Equitable Admissions and Outreach, which focuses on recruiting a diverse group of students and outreach to community colleges, HBCUs, etc. to increase diversity in the applicant pool; and 2) Transparency and Community Building, which focuses on inclusivity training and accountability within the PSPG community and raising awareness of structural racism by organizing events such as DEI-focused panel discussions and Juneteenth celebrations.
