The Diversity, Disparities, and Difference (D3) Initiative at UCLA Luskin was launched in 2014 by former Dean Franklin D. Gilliam, Jr. as part of UCLA’s effort to build a more equitable environment on campus. The D3 Initiative aims to create a cohesive strategy to bridge differences, understand our diverse society, and confront disparities in the field of public affairs. The D3 Initiative aims to enhance student admissions and faculty searches by championing more diverse applicant pools; institutionalize programming that offers a critical understanding of social inequity while establishing connections with the greater community; and strengthen student collaboration and cohort interaction for a more inclusive school climate.
