The Leadership Demographics Dashboard provides 11 years of data on the gender and racial/ethnic composition of UCLA Department Chairs, Deans, and Senior Administrators. Data for Senior Administrators are presented in three-year increments, meaning up to 3 individuals will be represented in each bar. Data for Deans and Department Chairs are presented in two-year increments, meaning up to 2 individuals will be represented in each bar. An exception to this rule occurs when there are Co-Chairs in a Department. In these cases, 3 individuals will be represented in the bars.
