School Information
"Founded as an experiment in 1960, UC San Diego scholars aren’t afraid to challenge convention if it means we can accelerate answers to our society’s most pressing issues. As one of the top 20 research universities in the world, we are driving change far beyond our walls to advance society and propel economic growth. And the world has taken notice." "UC San Diego’s academic programs, taught by recognized experts, prepare students to stand out and lead change. As a student-centered university, all undergraduates belong to a tight-knit college community and are equipped to succeed through supplemental learning, faculty-mentored research opportunities, student success coaches and more." The university has 12 divisions/schools, over 130 undegraduate majors, seven residential colleges, and a 19:1 student to faculty ratio. (Source: https://ucpa.ucsd.edu/campus-profile)
General Information
The chancellor of UC San Diego announced a "21-day Challenge". This challenge was a series of trainings and events focused on "power, position, privilege, perception, and process". The university's school offered several resources. For instance, the Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science offered a 10-hour training seminar titled Racial Resilience, in which participants will understand and define "racialization, racism, racial projects, colonialism, white privilege, compassion, self, parts/interior movements, and apply racial resilience methodology to confidently engage in anti-racism work and participate in conversations about racism."
