A wide variety of programs and resources exist at UC Berkeley to promote and support diversity. Many of these programs were started by students, and ultimately became part of the structure of the campus. There are also a number of informal support systems in place to help everyone adapt to the Cal Campus, which can be a large and overwhelming environment.

Inclusion and Belonging On Campus

The Campus Division of Equity & Inclusion provides leadership, accountability & inspiration to the UC Berkeley campus in integrating equity, inclusion, and diversity into all aspects of university life.  We encourage everyone to explore the pages and resources on their site to learn more about student, faculty and staff communities and opportunities on campus.  The site also includes many workshops for all community members.

Centers for Educational Justice and Community Engagement includes campus centers for African American Student Development, Asian Pacific American Student Development, Chicanx Latinx Student Development, Gender Equity Resource Center, Multicultural Community Center, Native American Student Development

UC Berkeley Office for Graduate Diversity - The Graduate Diversity Program (GDP) provides support services for prospective and continuing students on the Berkeley campus in an effort to maintain a more diverse graduate student community. GDP serves as a resource for the admissions process, academic support, financial advice, and professional development. It also provides a forum for ideas and programs designed to enhance the educational experience of underrepresented students, including those who are undocumented, first generation college students, and those who are educationally and financially challenged.
