As a community of creators, scholars, teachers, and activists, the School of Arts and Architecture upholds principles of anti-racism, equity, diversity, and inclusion as integral to their mission. The School of Arts and Architecture is committed to fostering an environment that values difference, rejects inequity, and actively works to advance social justice and amplify historically underrepresented and excluded voices. As a leading institution of culture and creativity, the School promotes these values across the arts and architecture and, more broadly, in the community. The School recognizes the opportunity and responsibility in shaping a more just future by cultivating a diverse, inclusive, and accessible community of students, faculty, staff, and arts supporters. As the School engages in this mission critical work, it must reckon with the violent histories that precede us and upon which we build. UCLA Arts acknowledges its presence on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Gabrielino/Tongva peoples. Together, the School works creatively to build a vibrant, equitable, and sustainable future for the school that models and supports the transformation needed in society.
