Help make tech more inclusive

Diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and justice (DEIBJ) are core principles interlaced in all aspects of the School of Information’s teaching, learning, and research. While we've made great strides in improving equity and creating a welcoming climate, there is still much work to be done to foster a more diverse student body. We educate the technology leaders and tech policymakers of tomorrow, and we must continue recruiting brilliant students who reflect the diversity of our state, our nation, and our world.

Among the initiatives that the I School Opportunity Fund supports are:

Please support talented and deserving I School students focused on fueling a more dynamic and diverse community as well as the tools and resources required for their success. Their work at the I School is fundamental to innovative teaching and research now and for a more equitable future in technology.
