Students with flag

The Office of Diversity and Engagement offers a variety of convenings to link leaders and to deepen the expertise of our partners throughout the state. This year, we invite you to a new 2017–18 webinar series for educators, college preparation professionals and the UC community.

The 60- to 90-minute webinars will take place once a month beginning October 2017. Each will feature a distinguished speaker or panel of speakers, moderated by Diversity and Engagement staff members. Sessions will address a range of the most urgent issues now facing educators. 


Diversity Data: An analysis of California K–12 and UC demographics

Friday, October 6, 2017
10–11 a.m.

The University of California is committed to a diverse community that reflects the demographics of the state. This webinar will share the current status of that goal, providing an overview of demographics in California and at the university. The webinar will focus specifically on the academic pipeline for two persistently underrepresented groups, engaging participants in a data-supported exploration of how California's African American and Chicano/Latino students move across the public education continuum. By drawing together data from multiple sources, including the California Department of Education, the College Board and the UC Data Warehouse, the webinar will identify subgroups of URM students most likely to benefit from specific forms of intervention, along with projected enrollment gains.

This webinar will also include an overview of the UC Information Center, which provides easily accessible data on a wide range of topics affecting the UC community. The overview will showcase the Info Center’s interactive analyses of transfer admissions and affordability.

Presented by:

  • Elizabeth Halimah, Associate Vice Provost, UC Office of the President
  • Ryan Chan, Senior Research & Planning Analyst, UC Office of the President
