This issue of Graduate Focus provides a brief status report on ethnic diversity at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). It includes an overview of relevant institutional data and notes various issues, concerns, and current activities. In graduate programs, UCLA designates as underrepresented minorities domestic students of Black/African American, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Chicano/Mexican American, Latino/Other Hispanic, and Filipino backgrounds. Asian Americans are not considered underrepresented at UCLA as a whole, although the Graduate Division recognizes that Asian Americans are underrepresented in some disciplines. If Asian Americans are included, UCLA ranks high among universities awarding degrees to minority students, but if Asian Americans are excluded, the university still grants a reasonably high number of degrees to Hispanic students, but does not rank highly in terms of degrees awarded to other minority groups. The Graduate Division has developed a number of outreach, recruitment, and retention initiatives with special attention to underrepresented groups. Some of these programs are described. (SLD)
