Campus Resources

UC San Diego has many programs to help you stay informed and active. Students are invited to take part in nearly 50 multicultural associations and social justice collectives. Similarly, faculty and staff can play an integral role in removing barriers and challenging discrimination by becoming involved in academic outreach and awareness programs, affirmative action committees, and the many staff associations offered on campus.

California Gender Recognition Act (SB 179)

Last fall, Governor Brown signed into law the Gender Recognition Act (California Senate Bill 179). The law streamlines the process for Californians to apply to change their gender markers and creates a nonbinary gender category (the letter “x” or “nb”) on California birth certificates, drivers’ licenses, identity cards, and gender-change court orders. This enables many in our community—including transgender, intersex, and nonbinary people—to have full recognition in California.

To prepare our campus for this transition, Vice Chancellor Petitt has asked Cindy Palmer, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Academic Personnel; Nancy Resnick, the incoming Chief Human Resources Officer; and Shaun Travers, Campus Diversity Officer and Director of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Resource Center, to co-lead a steering committee to advise senior leadership on measures to prepare for this change.
