The CSW recently closed its application period and is beginning to screen for new members and alternates. Individuals who applied will learn about their application status by early August. In addition, in the Summer of 2018, the CSW site will link to a new feedback form so that campus faculty, staff, and students can provide their suggestions and concerns about the status of women on campus. Also coming soon, we plan to develop a mechanism to invite CSW supporters to get involved with CSW events and gender equity related campus initiatives. We look forward to hearing from you.
Who We Are
The Chancellor's Advisory Committee on the Status of Women (CSW) was formed in 1987 and is comprised of UC San Diego faculty, staff, and student representatives appointed by the Vice Chancellor for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (VCEDI).
The CSW plays a valuable role on campus by advising the Chancellor through the VCEDI on issues relating to the status of women and gender equity at UC San Diego. The CSW makes recommendations to the Chancellor and VCEDI regarding policies and practices that will improve the campus climate and overall experience for women students, staff, and faculty at UC San Diego.For the 2017-2018 year, the CSW has the following priorities:
- Provide input on programming for professional development and advancement of women staff and faculty at UC San Diego;
- Provide input in the ongoing development and implementation of UC San Diego Strategic Plan for Inclusive Excellence, ensuring that women and gender equity issues are reflected in the plan; and
- Provide recommendations to improve website and communication mechanisms in an effort to enhance access to information on issues impacting women at UC San Diego.
