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.
The 2018 Giving Day set a record not only for the total raised – almost tripling last year’s $1.4 million – but also for the number of gifts received, number of parent donors, number of donor-sponsored matches and challenges, and number of states represented in the donor pool. Big thanks to all of you who reached deep into your pockets and contributed so generously to this noble institution.
The “United to End Homelessness” in Orange County effort officially kicked off at UCI on Feb. 28. Chancellor Howard Gillman, a member of the initiative’s Leadership Advisory Council, was a featured speaker, highlighting the university’s community engagement and leadership in helping to find solutions to critical local issues.
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.
