We are the nexus for UC efforts that advance diversity, equity and inclusion throughout the academic pipeline.

The Office of Diversity and Engagement provides vision, direction, leadership and oversight of UC’s engagement in public education. We manage programs, initiatives and services that prepare students to succeed academically and to ensure that they advance smoothly throughout the academic pipeline. We focus on students from communities with low college enrollment rates, applying current research and best practices to enhance the teaching-learning process with public school educators. We contribute to developing overarching strategies and approaches for the UC system that advance access, diversity and inclusion for students and faculty.

Principal Leadership Institutes

In 2019, the Principal Leadership Institutes at UC Berkeley and UCLA celebrated 20 years of preparing urban school leaders who are committed to increasing educational achievement and opportunities for underserved students.

Together, the two Principal Leadership Institutes have provided rigorous preparation for over 1,300 diverse and talented educational leaders for the state of California and beyond.

Personal Insight Questions Video

Diversity and Engagement has created a video to help students approach the new personal insight questions on the UC application. The video provides writing tips and guidance for students from underrepresented backgrounds who are the first in their families to apply for college, or whose schools have limited college counseling resources.
