Welcome to Beyond the Check Box at UC San Diego.

This was a collaborative project brought to you by Thurgood Marshall College at UC San Diego and the UCLA Bruin Resource Center in 2012. Inspiration and motivation for the project are rooted The Hapa Project, an exploration of multiracial identities, carried out in 2011 by artist Kip Fulbeck. Our aim is to illuminate the beautiful and ever evolving identities of the inspired, intellectual, and determined people who make up our university communities.

The title of the project is given aptly by the nature of our intent to encourage the breaking of boundaries and to promote the expansion of opportunities to engage in the redefinition of individuals through more personal lenses, regardless of traditional social group definitions. The salience of different identities will become apparent in what we share about ourselves. Some may see themselves through more traditional lenses, but what those identities mean are made into their own sources of power, pride, and individuality. However, and whatever is shared here are solely the views of those who express them and are not the words, expressions, feelings, or intent of Thurgood Marshall College, UC San Diego, or its affiliates."
