LGBTQ Community Inclusion

Aligned with the University of California’s commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion, UC San Diego values and supports inclusive definitions of family. As a result of the 2015 UC San Diego Academic Senate-Administration Joint Task Force on Family Accommodations, this campus’s academic family accommodation policies (PPM 230-15) were substantially expanded in 2016 to better serve both the LGBTQ academic community and the greater academic community at large. UC San Diego’s policies now exceed University of California requirements. 

Please see this infographic for a brief overview of current family accommodations. All are reported or requested via use of the campus FAR form.
