Campus Climate

The University of California defines campus climate as the current attitudes, behaviors and standards of faculty, staff, administrators and students concerning the level of respect for individual needs, abilities and potential.

Respect, diversity and inclusion are crucial aspects of campus climate. Respect refers both to the experience of people on a campus as well as the quality of interactions between groups and individuals. According to the UC Regents' Study Group on University Diversity, diversity and inclusion efforts are not complete unless they also address climate, [and] addressing campus climate is an important and necessary component in any comprehensive plan for diversity.


UC is committed to eradicating systemic racism in university life and operations.
