Gender and diversity resources

The Bioengineering Program welcomes students of all backgrounds and orientations. In addition to your program officers and campus student groups, there are many formal programs offering assistance to women and underrepresented groups.

The University of California policies prohibit sexual harassment, including sexual assault. We are committed to providing an environment free from discrimination and harassment on the basis of categories including race, color, national origin, gender, age, sexual orientation/identity.

Your Bioengineering program staff and graduate advisers are available to offer help and advice whenever you are in need. In addition, each campus offers many resources to assist:
