In accord with guidance provided by health officials and university leadership in managing the spread of COVID-19 and in an abundance of care for our community, the Division of Equity, Inclusion & Community Impact has decided to cancel and/or postpone much of its in-person programming through May 31, 2020. Unfortunately, this means that all IE workshops have been cancelled.

During this period, we would encourage you to take advantage of virtual learning opportunities on diversity, equity, and inclusion that are available through SuccessFactors Learning,, or CampusLink.

When in-person offerings are resumed, all Inclusive Excellence workshops will be posted on the Faculty Development OneStop, and open to any UC community member.

If you are in need of more immediate consultation, staff remain available to provide assistance and support. Please do not hesitate to contact us at:
