Diversity at UC – this is me.

As part of Diversity Fest 2019 we are exploring what a diverse and inclusive UC community looks like.

This week the UCSA International Rep Kevin Fernando was out and about on campus talking to students about how they are their true self, how they are represented and how they are able to express themselves at UC.

Check out the thoughtful responses of some of our students in the video.

Join the conversation – we want to hear from as many of you as possible, if you missed the chance to share your thoughts, please include them in the comments below.
