Collective Impact

Employing a collaborative approach to manifest our shared goals and leverage common datasets, tools and assessments across our many unique programs.

Working collectively and coherently to become a more inclusive student-centered, research-focused, service-oriented university, we will use Collective Impact to: 

  • Scale up the size, connectivity, and impact of our research collaborations
  • Be as proudly innovative in education as we are in scholarship
  • Empower every Triton to succeed – undergraduates, graduate students, staff and faculty

As our university has rapidly expanded, various schools and offices have created unique programs that address the needs of individuals in particular disciplines, career paths, or personal circumstances. Yet, these valuable programs cover only a fraction of the Triton community. To erase the opportunity gaps that divide us, we must find ways to reach everyone. 

Academic Affairs invites you to join “Erasing Opportunity Gaps via Collective Impact” – an initiative to leverage and enhance the mentoring, training, and support systems at UC San Diego that have the potential to jointly improve the experience, climate, and performance for all of our undergraduates, graduate students, staff, and faculty. Read more from the Executive Vice Chancellor in her invitation letter shared in 2021.   

Next Steps

We have launched the Collective Impact website following the Future of Academic Affairs Forum, held on Jan. 27, 2022. Please visit the CI website to learn more about Collective Impact at UC San Diego.
