Social Justice & Inclusion


UCSC actively strives to advance different cultural definitions of how to care for environmental spaces and human communities, and promote multicultural inclusion in sustainability initiatives across campus. All classes within the Sustainability Office’s Employee Sustainability Certificate program incorporate discussions around diversity, inclusion and social justice, in addition to a class titled on “Diversity & Environment”, exploring the history of racism within the traditional environmental movement. The People of Color Sustainability Collective, housed in the Chicanx Latinx Resource Center, won a California Higher Education Sustainability Conference Best Practices award in 2017.
