Knowledge is Power.” You’ve probably heard this before as a television public service announcement or meme. It sounds trite, but the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) fully embraces this view. Part of receiving a world-class education is to learn how to find and use information to solve problems and effect change. And EDI is committed to providing you the necessary tools to achieve that purpose.

That’s why we’re introducing a new set of materials called “Know” by EDI. Simply put, “Know” will be our clearinghouse for helpful facts and resources on various pressing subjects. Our first page is already up, providing content on immigration, particularly in light of recent federal policy changes and executive orders from the White House. And we’ll be constantly updating “Know” with new pages and information relevant to the UCLA community and beyond.

We hope this repository proves useful. And, in the spirit of learning, we are open to suggestions on valuable resources that we’ve missed. Please e-mail all feedback and suggestions to us at rklibaner@equity.ucla.edu (please include “Know Resources” in the subject line).
