The CA&ES DEI committee is composed of approximately 20 individuals representing a cross section of faculty, staff and students in the college. The committee has been charged with:

  • Providing guidance to the dean and Policy Council on key issues that affect our college with respect to diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice.
  • Identifying ways for the college to contribute additional efforts and implementation strategies to the overarching UC Davis Strategic Plan Goal 3 developed by the Chancellor.
  • Identifying barriers to admissions, hiring and advancements, and other areas of concern.
