As I enter my fourth year as Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, I am thrilled to be a part of the continuous growth, spirit, and strength of the UCSB community. Across Student Affairs’ departments and programs, we are proud of the work we do each day and of our influence in the lives of the students we serve.

RECENT COMMUNICATIONS FROM THE VCSA

April 4, 2019

 

Subject:  UCSB Community Principles and Resources for Reporting Bias Incidents

 

 

Dear UCSB Students, 

 

As we start the spring quarter, we want to remind all members of the UC Santa Barbara community of our expectations for how we treat each other. We are witnessing disturbing and offensive national trends, including concerning instances of anti-Black racism, anti-Semitism, and doxing or online harassment. Incidents like these are occurring in our community and on our campus, as well. Incidents of intolerance do not reflect the values of UC Santa Barbara. We want to take this opportunity to remind everyone of our Principles of Community, (http://diversity.ucsb.edu/about/principles.of.community/) particularly that we seek to affirm the intrinsic dignity in each of us, celebrate our differences, and recognize and honor diversity as vital to the excellence of our University.

 

As these recent incidents of bias indicate, our values are not always demonstrated and upheld by members of our community. When this occurs, UC Santa Barbara wants to know. If you believe you have experienced or observed an incident of bias, please file a report using our Bias Incident Reporting System (http://studentlife.sa.ucsb.edu/bias). Incidents can be reported anonymously if desired, and the system allows you to indicate whether or not you would like the University to contact you about the incident. We would like to encourage that all members of our community make use of this system, as it may allow us to investigate and/or appropriately respond to reported incidents. In cases where a response is not possible, reports still provide our campus with climate information, which may help identify where further work remains to be done to create an inclusive environment.

 

Many of our campus departments recently received a "Bias Free UCSB" poster. These posters provide the website used to file a Bias Incident Report, as well as a list of campus resources for those who experience or observe bias. We ask that our campus offices post these in a prominent location, and if additional posters are needed, please email equity@sa.ucsb.edu.  A copy of the poster is attached along with a resource guide on doxing and online harassment.   

 

UC Santa Barbara is one of the top research universities in the world. Our academic excellence and our diverse community complement each other.  We encourage each of our campus community members to engage in dialogue about diversity and inclusion, which can only serve to improve our campus climate and allow us to continue to be a leading educational institution.

 

Sincerely, 

 

Katya Armistead, Assistant Vice Chancellor/Dean of Students 

Margaret Klawunn, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
