ALL ACADEMICS AT UCSD (including UCSD Medical Center)
On May 23, 2006, Robert Dynes hosted a UC Presidentís Summit on Faculty Diversity. This summit was the culmination of more than a yearís work by the Presidentís Task Force on Faculty Diversity and focused on future efforts to address faculty diversity at the University of California.
The charge of the task force was to conduct a comprehensive review of faculty diversity at each campus. The review included an analysis of faculty headcount and hiring data over time and by academic field. Teams of three to four task force members visited each campus. The final report of the task force is now available at the following Web site: http://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/facultydiversity/report.html.
A campus work group will be established to review the reportís recommendations and to advise the chancellor on implementation. President Dynes expects to be advised of the groupís progress in June 2007. I strongly encourage you to take the time to review this report.
