UCI asks all applicants to submit a separate statement addressing how their “past and/or potential contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion will advance UCI’s commitment to inclusive excellence.”  Please note that such contributions are conceived of quite broadly, as encompassing teaching, mentorship, and service activities, as well as the content of one’s own academic research, while diversity itself is understood as a variety of personal experiences, values, and worldviews that arise from differences of culture and circumstance, including race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, language abilities/disabilities, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geographic region, and more.  Such a statement might indicate awareness of inequities and challenges faced by historically underrepresented or economically disadvantaged groups, demonstrate a track record of engagement in such activities, and/or articulate any specific plans for further contributions to them.
