Diversity, Inclusion, & Equity
The best and most successful teams are diverse. But diversity is not just about ensuring folks from a wide range of backgrounds and perspectives are represented, it also means creating a community where everyone feels welcome and supported. At UCSC, inclusivity is the key to excellence in all of our pursuits.
Smarter Balanced is proudly part of University of California Santa Cruz and embraces UCSC’s commitment to cultivating an inclusive climate. Furthermore, a dedication to equity is core to our mission at Smarter Balanced—we develop instructional resources and assessment tools that support educators and their work with diverse learners.
