Welcome to the University of California, Irvine, one of the nation’s foremost public research universities and an anchoring institution for Orange County. For over 50 years, generations of UCI students, faculty, staff and alumni have helped our community thrive through collaboration, creativity and innovation. I look forward to keeping you informed and connected to the Anteater family.
As the year comes to a close and we disperse from our classrooms and offices for the holiday break, I hope all of us will spend this wonderful season taking time to rest and rejuvenate, celebrate all the good in the world with family and friends, and reinvigorate ourselves for the new year. It has been a terrific year at UCI, and there is much to look back on with thankfulness and pride.
Partnering with our alumni and community, the campaign will build upon UCI’s known strengths within four major pillars: helping more students achieve the American dream, transforming healthcare and wellness, accelerating world-changing research, and exploring the human experience.
University of California, Irvine was founded to catalyze the community and enhance lives through rigorous academics, cutting-edge research and dedicated public service. Today, we draw on the unyielding spirit of our pioneering faculty, staff and students who arrived on campus with a dream to inspire change and generate new ideas. We believe that true progress is made when different perspectives come together to advance our understanding of the world around us. And we enlighten our communities and point the way to a better future. At UCI, we shine brighter.
