The campus recognizes that many students, especially those from segments of the population that have not traditionally been represented in the academy, are unfamiliar with graduate education and will benefit from resources that will acquaint them with academic culture and support their success and development into career professionals.
Diversity at UC Santa Barbara includes underrepresented minorities, first-generation college students, students who identify as LGTBQ, women in departments with less than 25 percent women enrolled, undocumented students, graduate students who are parents, veterans or military dependents, students with disabilities, or any other students from non-traditional backgrounds.
