GROW resource


At UC Santa Barbara we value an inclusive and affirming environment for all students, staff, and faculty. Learning about other communities and identities and how to be a supportive advocate and ally is a lifelong project. Many of us receive little exposure to identities different from our own in our earlier lives, and thus universities can be the first time we encounter people different from ourselves. 

We can choose to let these differences divide us, or we can engage in intentional self-development to better understand and appreciate the many aspects of identities, cultures, and backgrounds. The resources on this site are intended to serve as a place to engage with these topics. We called this site "Grow" because we are never finished learning about others and how best to respect and support them.
