Most students agree that UCSD is diverse, but it is still dominantly made up of Caucasian and Asian students, and there are fewer African American and Hispanic students on campus. UCSD students do have a diverse set of political, religious, and social views. Although campus is mostly Caucasian and Asian, there is still a great number of different cultures represented. Many different ethnic, racial, and religious groups at UCSD have formed clubs and organizations to work as support groups for their members, and they also work to educate other students of the diversity on campus. The faculty at UCSD remains pitifully undiverse, racially, ethnically, and by gender. Although it differs by department, expect to have mostly Caucasian male professors.
Since the end of Affirmative Action in 1995, the diversity at UCSD has gone down considerably, but it is now rising again. UCSD is diverse, but it does not accurately represent the diversity in California. There are many programs that `actively try to create more diversity at UCSD by reaching out to high school students in San Diego and across the state, so hopefully in the coming years, UCSD will regain some of the diversity it lost.
