Concept Papers

Several of these papers correlate directly to goals that are now in place, while two of the papers – Diversity and Environment and Sustainability – were found to be deeply held values that underpin everything we do at UC Santa Cruz.

The Planning Task Force discovered these dominant concepts after reviewing the input they collected from more than 1200 stakeholders, then developed these white papers to give readers an intimate understanding of 1) the role each concept plays in defining UC Santa Cruz and 2) how each concept can shape our future.
