Diversity Engagement and Community Outreach

The Office of Diversity Engagement and Community Outreach (DECO) seeks to promote a campus climate and culture that values diversity in all its forms - through inclusive dialogues, interpersonal experiences, and intercultural appreciation - in support of a thriving campus climate and inclusive excellence.

Areas of Focus

  • Capacity Building - DECO designs spaces of learning and dialogue for faculty, staff, and students.
  • Campus Climate - Programs and initiatives that respond to and assess ever-changing campus climate needs while also proactively designing spaces for community building.
  • Community Outreach - Through community-centered programming, DECO welcomes the larger San Francisco community to our campus to facilitate critical partnerships with local and national leaders.
  • Policy Advisement - Through a collective process, like-minded campus members come together to create and influence institutional processes to alleviate gaps, build resources, and create a network of experts in various areas of campus equity work.
