More information about the role of the Faculty Equity Advisor and the individuals appointed can be found at the new Faculty Equity web site: http://facultyequity.ucsd.edu/.
These positions, as well as the newly created Associate Vice Chancellor, Faculty Equity position currently held by Professor Jeanne Ferrante, were recommended by the UC San Diego Workgroup on the Report of the UC President’s Task Force on Faculty Diversity.
We appreciate the Deans’ and Vice Chancellors’ strong support in their appointments, and the Equity Advisors willingness to step forward to take on this important task. As Chancellor and SVCAA, we are strongly committed to increasing the number of women and historically underrepresented minority faculty. We ask that you help support the Faculty Equity Advisors in their new roles.
