UC remains dedicated to building a more diverse workforce, particularly those from under-represented racial and ethnic populations in the U.S. A more diverse academic and staff population is an increasingly important measure of a great university.

  • Two or more races/ethnicities was collected beginning in 2010 to align with federal reporting requirements.
  • In 2010, UC re-categorized some academic administrators (mostly deans) from SMG staff to academics. 
  • Workforce headcounts and an explanation of the methodology behind the personnel categories can be found on the employee headcount dashboard: https://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/infocenter/uc-employee-headcount
  • The effective size of UC's workforce in terms of full-time-equivalent (FTE) employees can be found on the FTE dashboard: https://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/infocenter/employee-fte
  • Employee groupings are based on Class-Title-Outline (CTO) code. More information can be found here: https://accountability.universityofcalifornia.edu/glossary.html#table3

  • In September 2018, programming improvements to the dataset reduced the number of employees with "Unknown" race/ethnicity by incorporating additional race/ethnicity information. For that reason, figures published or produced before that time may not align with current figures.
