DEI Executive Leadership Team

Diversity & Inclusion Executive Leadership Team

The foundational purpose behind establishing the Executive Leadership Team (DEI-ELT) is to ensure the coordination of diversity, equity and inclusion activities across the UC Davis and UCD Health campuses and to have a unified advisory body made up of key leaders who oversee academic, staff, and student diversity, equity, inclusion and climate issues.

In particular, the team provides advice on:

  • Establishing professional standards and expectations for equity.
  • Sharing and sustaining campus values and goals around DEI and social justice.
  • Programs, projects, initiatives, or topics in need of senior leadership support or endorsement.
  • Legal, political, and economic issues that affect our campus with respect to DEI and social justice.
  • Reinforcing success and sharing of best practices.
