Welcome to the Office for Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (OEDI)
The mission of the Office for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion is to create a climate of inclusion reflected in structures, policies and practices; the demographics of UC Davis Health community; the attitudes and values of its members and leaders; and the quality of personal interactions. Its goals are to
- Create, promote and foster an organization that values development, diversity and growth opportunities for all employees
- Provide enhanced knowledge, skills and tools to respond and engage in a culturally sensitive and respectful mannerism with patients, visitors and our community as a whole
- Provide quality training designed to increase individual and institutional engagement, increased morale, productivity and enrichment.
Diversity is a defining feature of the University of California and we embrace it as a source of strength. Our differences — of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, socioeconomic status, abilities, experience and more — enhance our ability to achieve the university’s core missions of public service, teaching and research. We welcome faculty, staff and students from all backgrounds and want everyone at UC to feel respected and valued.
Inclusion means we honor, respect, embrace and value the unique contributions and perspectives of all employees, patients, students, volunteers and our local and global communities. It also includes removing barriers to individual success.
Campus Climate is the current attitudes, behaviors and standards of faculty, staff, administrators and students concerning the level of respect for individual needs, abilities and potential.

UC Davis Health Police Accountability Board
The UC Davis Police Accountability Board (PAB) was established in 2014 to develop and promote accountability, trust and communication between the campus community and the UC Davis Police Department. The PAB is an independent board composed of representatives of the UC Davis community. Working with independent campus investigators from the Office of Compliance and Policy, the PAB is charged with making recommended findings to the Chief of Police based on objective investigations into complaints of misconduct filed against UC Davis police officers.
