Welcome to the UCLA EDI Data Hub!

UCLA is a huge campus and many of its operations are decentralized. We realize that this can make the search for accurate and relevant data daunting. We also realize that the EDI office might not have all of the data you’re looking for. We built this website with those two issues in mind.

When you click on a link, you’ll be sent to a landing page, where you’ll see what we have first. Next, we’ll point you to additional resources. Even if we don’t have information to post on a topic yet, we’ve made a landing page that will describe and link to resources outside of our office. To get started, click to expand the menu underneath your chosen population. Next, select a topic to be sent to its landing page.
