DECADE Faculty Mentors

DECADE (Diverse Educational Community and Doctoral Experience) Faculty Mentors dedicate their efforts to nurturing a positive diversity climate within their academic programs by serving as a resource to graduate students and faculty. DECADE Faculty Mentors also collaborate with ADVANCE Equity Advisors and graduate students from their school to promote an inclusive climate for all students.

Originally sponsored by a Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) grant from the U.S. Department of Education, DECADE was institutionalized in 2015, and is now housed under the Office of Inclusive Excellence. The DECADE program aims to increase the number of minorities and women underrepresented in their disciplines receiving doctoral degrees at UC Irvine. To accomplish this, Graduate Division and UCI ADVANCE have partnered to deliver a multifaceted program that features involvement of faculty, students and administration, and fosters collaborative efforts between faculty and graduate students in working to improve climate, access and inclusion.
