The Division of Extended Studies (DES) at UC San Diego is fully self-supporting, operating year-round (12 months of active instruction) with a budget of $47 million annually in primarily fee income. The unit has over 200 career employees, including academic, management, staff and executive, as well as represented and non-represented positions. Many casual or contract employees and student workers also serve in the organization. In addition, DES employs more than 1,000 active by-agreement instructors.

DES operates in 200,000 square feet of managed space, including a large off-campus classroom facility. The unit maintains a robust online learning platform, operating 24/7 with webcasting and video-conferencing capability. DES also has a strong web presence with e-commerce operating 24/7. There are over 60,000 enrollment transactions annually; 35,000 outreach certification transactions and 25,000 service transactions. DES supports a robust network of representatives, agents, and students (both residential and online) around the globe. Along with all of this, DES operates two television stations, a variety of public lecture programs and is active in federal, state, local, and private research and technical assistance programs and activities.

As of Fall 2020, the University has assumed ownership of a major downtown center for which DES is taking full financial and programming responsibility. The 66,000-square-foot building will support a rich mix of campus-based and community programs reflecting the teaching, research and public service mission of UC San Diego: classroom instruction, continuing education, arts and cultural performances, civic events and collaborative community projects.


The Collective Impact Analyst will work at the direction of the Associate Director of the DES Center for Research and Evaluation to lead a campus-wide initiative that aims to close opportunity gaps for students, faculty, and staff. UC San Diego has a multitude of programs and initiatives that are designed to help underrepresented groups succeed, but they often operate in isolation from one another, so their combined or collective impact is not well understood.

The Collective Impact Analyst will work closely with the project steering committee and members from across the university to achieve the following outcomes: 1) Use literature review to guide the identification of themes that influence outcomes for students, faculty, and staff, such as sense of belonging; 2) Form working groups comprised of leaders from campus initiatives organized by influential themes; 3) Map data for campus programs and initiatives that seek to close opportunity gaps for underrepresented groups and document availability of data in centralized systems; 4) Convene working groups to discuss and agree on shared metrics for tracking success; 5) Develop shared data reporting systems and Tableau dashboards where data will be presented by theme; 6) Facilitate data reporting in shared systems; 7) Use data analytics to identify program successes and potential areas for improvement; 8) Sustain collective impact work and share findings with the university community, and continue to introduce new campus groups to the purpose and goals of collective impact while integrating them into the process; and 9) Demonstrate the success of the collective impact in closing opportunity gaps for UC San Diego students, faculty, and staff.
