The University of California (UC) is subject to certain governmental record keeping and reporting requirements for the administration of civil rights laws and regulations. In order to comply with these laws, the University invites employees to voluntarily self-identify their gender, race/ethnicity, disability status and protected veteran status.
Beginning July 8, 2019, when you log in to UCPath Online, you will see guided prompts asking you to fill in any personal information that you have not already completed. All new employees who join UC after July 8, 2019 will be asked to complete these forms the first time they log in to UCPath online.
Please be advised, submission of this information is voluntary and refusal to provide it will not subject you to any adverse treatment. The information obtained will be kept confidential and may only be used in accordance with the provisions of applicable laws, executive orders, and regulations, including those that require the information to be summarized and reported to the federal government for civil rights enforcement.
What kind of questions will I be asked?
You will have the opportunity to answer questions about your…
- Veteran and disability status
- Gender identity
- Sexual orientation
Responses to these questions are completely voluntary...

Note: It's hard to believe that, with the possible exception of sexual orientation, this information isn't already on file through medical and personal records within the UC system. So, if UCPath asks, "Are you there?," you can answer "Yes, Siam":
