The faculty, staff and retirees of UC make up a diverse, far-flung community and UC is committed to offering all its members a safe, supportive, responsive and equitable environment. Recognizing that our diversity contributes to the university’s strength, UC rejects all forms of discrimination, commits to fostering an atmosphere of respect and empathy, pledges to defend the right to free speech and promises to promote transparency in community dealings. Every faculty and staff member is expected to behave in ways that support these principles and to do what he or she can to improve life at UC.
