Workgroup on the UC President's Task Force on Faculty Diversity Report
March 2007
You charged us to serve as a small working group to help you "assess where our campus is
with respect to meeting the objectives of the UC President's Task Force on Faculty Diversity
Report and to recommend actions that the campus might take to advance the diversity of our
faculty and address the recommendations of the Task Force." We have reviewed the UC
President's Task Force Report, the comprehensive 2004 UCSD Report of the Senate-
Administration Task Force on Underrepresented Faculty, best practices and other documents
and reports published by the Office of Academic Diversity and Equal Opportunity (OADEO),
several communications from interested faculty that you and the Chancellor have received,
and the assessments and goals presented by the deans in their Charting the Course (CTC)
proposals. We decided that the data, the challenges, and the issues are clear. We therefore
decided to review existing efforts and to identify and recommend a few new initiatives that we
agree should have substantial impact to increase faculty diversity and thereby enhance the
stature and excellence of UCSD.
Our assessment of current actions that are already in effect at UCSD is provided in Appendix
C of this report. It is arranged in a format that is suitable for your response to President
