DESCRIPTION

Named for civil rights lawyer and Supreme Court Justice Thurgood
Marshall and inspired by his contributions to building a more just society, Thurgood Marshall College at UC San Diego is dedicated to
supporting undergraduate students from all majors to become engaged citizens who are committed to serving society. Marshall College staff
members work collaboratively to guide students in understanding that their professional careers will take place in a larger societal context
determined by complex histories and social struggles, and that they have a hand in shaping the future. Founded in 1970 as UC San Diego’s
third college, the College’s mission to “develop students as scholars and citizens” is brought to life by our engaged students, faculty,
staff, and alumni who live, work, and study all over the world.

Equity, diversity, and inclusion are central to the mission of
Marshall College. This is reflected in the topics of study in the Dimensions of Culture Program, the required writing courses for all
entering first year students, that focuses on the study of diversity, justice, and imagination in U.S. history, culture, and society. Our
residence halls and apartment communities represent the grassroots history of our college in their house names, utilize restorative
practices/justice to build community, and house large communities of underrepresented minoritized students, including significant
populations of Native, Black, and Latinx students. The College’s programs and partnerships demonstrate our commitment to diversity, as shown
through our exchange programs with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), the Public Service minor, our Partnerships Schools
Program with Gompers Preparatory Academy and the Preuss School, our work with the OASIS Summer Bridge Program, the Kumeyaay Native Garden,
and striking art pieces throughout Marshall College: the Sojourner Truth statue, the Chicano Legacy Mural, and a recently installed
community-based mural in our residential community.
