The Institute for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, is entering its 14th year as an enduring venue for institutional transformation. The Institute brings together staff and faculty leaders from UCI, the University of California, and universities and colleges from the greater southern California region.

The theme of this year’s Institute is “Black Thriving at UCI – Accountability Begins with Understanding.”  This theme refers to our common responsibility for building solidarity, thriving and community while dismantling anti-Black racism and all “isms” to achieve inclusive excellence priorities at UCI.  Our forum provides a valuable opportunity to refine goals, strategies, and metrics in ways that will improve coordination, communication and collaboration for student, staff, and faculty success.

The Institute for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion is scheduled in two virtual meeting blocks: AM (9:30 a.m.-noon) and PM (12:45 p.m.-3:00 p.m.).  The event will feature a skills session, keynote, and information on sustaining thriving, community, and wellness at UCI.
