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.
I am delighted to announce that UCI has received a transformational gift from Joe C. Wen and his family to support and advance the Center for Advanced Care, which is under construction at the UCI Health – Irvine complex. In recognition of this extraordinary philanthropy, the center will be named the Joe C. Wen & Family Center for Advanced Care.
I am delighted to announce that UCI is a founding member of a new higher education consortium, the Alliance of Hispanic Serving Research Universities. The partnership of 20 of the nation’s leading research universities aims to achieve two key goals by 2030 – double the number of Hispanic doctoral students enrolled at Alliance universities and increase by 20 percent the Hispanic professoriate in alliance universities.
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.
