The University of California, Santa Barbara is a leading research institution that also provides a comprehensive liberal arts learning experience. Because teaching and research go hand in hand at UC Santa Barbara, our students are full participants in an educational journey of discovery that stimulates independent thought, critical reasoning, and creativity. Our community of faculty, students, and staff are involved in a culture of interdisciplinary collaboration that is responsive to the needs of our multicultural and global society. Through the creation and distribution of knowledge that advances the well-being of our state, nation, and world, we demonstrate our commitment to public service.
To fulfill our mission, faculty, staff, and students are engaged in a process that begins with cultivating a sense of mutual respect and understanding amongst our community's diverse components. Towards this end, we acknowledge that the success of this University depends on each student, staff, and faculty member's thoughtful adherence to the following principles of community:
The UC Santa Barbara "Principles of Community" was developed in collaboration with faculty, staff, and students serving on the Advisory Council on Campus Climate, Culture, and Inclusion and issued by the Chancellor in February 2011.
