UCLA Faculty Members Approve Diversity-Course Requirement

The Chronicle of Higher Education
November 3rd, 2014

Faculty members in the University of California at Los Angeles’s College of Letters and Science have voted to require future undergraduate students to take a course on diversity, after three previous efforts to add such a requirement failed in the last two decades.
Faculty members at the college, which enrolls about 85 percent of UCLA’s undergraduates, approved the requirement by a vote of 332 to 303, with 24 blank ballots. It will affect incoming freshmen in the fall of 2015 and transfer students in 2017.
UCLA’s chancellor, Gene D. Block, said he was pleased by the faculty vote.
