The UC San Diego Strategic Plan for Inclusive Excellence Campaign

(Fall 2017 - Spring 2018)

The Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion is currently developing a UC San Diego Strategic Plan for Inclusive Excellence in conjunction with stakeholders from across the entire UC San Diego campus. In the spirit of diversity of ideas and inclusiveness of opinions and thoughts, the use of IdeaWave will help to gain additional perspectives from the campus on our future Strategic Plan for Inclusive Excellence. This all-campus campaign is planned for launch in Fall 2017 and will be the first in a two-part series to provide feedback and refine our Strategic Plan for Inclusive Excellence.

It Pays to Save!

(June -July 2017)

Sponsored by VC-CFO and SC-SPOC, the "It Pays to Save" campaign launched on June 8, 2017. If you have a cost savings idea to further streamline our administration or our programs and save costs, we want to hear it. You can share your idea by logging into IdeaWave using your SSO (single sign-on account) and locate the "It Pays to Save!" campaign in the rotating banner at the top of the screen.

With your help, Saving Total Costs by Efficient Processes (STEP) seeks to identify opportunities in campus processes that can yield demonstrable reductions in total costs to the campus. In particular, we are looking for ideas that will continue to meet service standards while simultaneously saving costs to the entire organization. While not required, you are invited to include any preliminary estimates of expected cost savings and overall impact.
