In 2018, the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) was ranked first on a list of colleges and universities that are most likely “to get rid” of diversity in their student body.
According to the UC San Diego Diversity Study Report 2018, “UC San Diego ranks first for its perceived acceptance of racial and ethnic minorities and second for its ability to reduce its diversity.”
It is a ranking of diversity that is based on the UC Santa Barbara survey, which was conducted in 2015.
The Santa Barbara study found that the UCSD students are more likely to have experienced discrimination, been harassed or verbally assaulted than the students of any other college in the country.
“UC Santa Barbara has an overall higher rate of discrimination against its minority population,” the report reads.
“While this is a good thing, we know that this discrimination can have negative impacts on students’ mental health and emotional well-being.”
This year, the UCSB campus was the subject of widespread media attention after it was revealed that two of the four male student leaders in the student government had been accused of sexual misconduct.
The women who were accused were not even students in the UCSC Student Government.
As reported by the Los Angeles Times, the women were “not involved in any political or social action, but they had a long history of being accused of inappropriate behavior in the past.”
According to a report in The Atlantic, the UC Davis campus was also named as one of the campuses that is most hostile towards minorities and women.
According the report, UC Davis was ranked the least diverse campus in the U.S. in terms of the percentage of its students that were Hispanic, Asian, black, Native American, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, and black or Asian-American students.
“This report is not a reflection of how diverse or progressive UC Davis is as a whole, but the experiences of students and faculty at UC Davis,” the University said in a statement.
“The campus has a long, proud history of diversity, including the inclusion of women and people of color in its academic community, and a diverse student body that includes students from all backgrounds and walks of life.
Our diversity strategy is designed to foster a campus environment that is inclusive, welcoming, and supportive of diverse students and our community.”
According the survey, UC San Francisco, the largest public university in the nation, was also ranked as the most diverse.
UC Berkeley was ranked second and UC Irvine third.
The university said that its diversity strategy has a “tremendous amount of support” from the local community and that it was working to address the concerns raised by the students.
The report said that UC Berkeley and UC San Jose have committed to creating a diversity task force and that they are “actively seeking feedback from faculty, students, and staff” regarding the campus.
According it, the task force would be formed to review and improve the campus diversity program.
UC Davis also has an “aggressive” commitment to reducing its diversity and was ranked fourth in terms “diversity and inclusion,” according to the report.
“In addition to a number of important initiatives that have been initiated, the campus has established a strong community of students, faculty, and alumni dedicated to the goal of creating a more inclusive, diverse and equitable campus for all students and employees,” the university said.
According a report by The Atlantic: “A majority of respondents in the 2018 UC San Jacinto survey said they were aware of the fact that they had experienced bias or discrimination based on their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, or religion on campus.
Nearly a quarter of respondents said they had been harassed at some point in their lives, and another 24 percent said they felt intimidated or harassed by a campus police officer.”
According a UC Davis spokesman, the university’s “commitment to eliminating discrimination and creating a safe, welcoming and supportive environment is reflected in the campus’ current diversity efforts and ongoing efforts to engage with community members to understand and address issues related to diversity, inclusion and inclusion.”
UC Davis has also created a diversity committee comprised of students from different racial and gender identities, including “one woman who identifies as trans, one black woman, and one white man,” the spokesperson said.
The UC Davis Diversity Report 2018 says that UC Davis strives to “engage and understand students and staff on a broad range of issues and to create an environment that fosters a safe and welcoming campus.”
“We have an obligation to our students, staff, and faculty, who represent an overwhelming majority of our students and students of color, to create a safe space that is welcoming to all,” the statement reads.
