UC San Diego DISC Membership

The UC San Diego DISC offers two membership categories: DISC General Member and DISC Investigator. These membership categories represent the individual's preferred level of engagement in DISC services and activities based on their D&I research skills and interests. Both categories are free to join and receive the DISC's core benefits. Individuals from all disciplines and training backgrounds (undergraduate students through senior researchers or practitioners) are welcome to join. Completion of an annual evaluation survey is required for both categories.
