The ERGs and Constituent Groups have an essential role in promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) throughout the institution and in collaboration with our local communities.  It has been through efforts of leaders and champions that has made the ERGs successful. The goal of the retreat is to build upon the existing strengths and assets of the ERGs and Constituent Groups and to invest in the development as EDI leaders. The retreat will focus on activities that enhance leadership and professional development, and ensure that diversity, equity and inclusion remains paramount to the Universities’ business and organizational objectives.

33rd Annual Chicanx and Latinx Graduation Celebration

  Thirty-three years ago Chicanx and Latinx students came together to discuss the possibility of having a special graduation that would reflect their achievements and struggles here at UC Davis.  These students developed a personal and culturally relevant opportunity for students to recognize their parents, family, and significant others who contributed to their success here at the University.

 The celebration brings together the entire community to acknowledge its significance in supporting our achievements.  This event seeks to inspire younger siblings and family members by showing that Chicanx and Latinx students do succeed in college and can serve as positive role models. 

 This year we had 269 students participating in the 33rd annual of this inspiring event. Out of the 269, 5 students graduated from professional schools, 55 students graduated from the College of Agriculture and Environmental Science, 163 from the College of Letters and Science, 15 from College of Engineering, and 31 from College of Biological Sciences (this doesn’t include all who graduated this year).

 This year we had 34 of these students mention that their future plans involve Medical School.
