Brilliant Future - The Campaign for UCI

Oct. 4, 2019

Today we launch the largest philanthropic campaign in our history and in the history of Orange County – Brilliant Future: The Campaign for UCI.

The effort aims to raise an unprecedented $2 billion in private support and simultaneously engage at least 75,000 alumni. 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.

With your participation – and in partnership with our community of supporters – the time is right for us to dramatically increase our investment in new programs and people so that we can reach ever-greater levels of excellence and make an even stronger impact on the world.

With the public launch of this campaign, we set UCI on a new trajectory toward a brilliant future. And, importantly, it’s not just about our brilliant future – it’s about everyone’s. Every student, every patient, every member of our alumni community, every business leader, and every individual in our region and beyond.

We have accomplished so much in the past 54 years, more than any other comparable university in the nation, but we’re not finished. This is just the beginning of a new and exciting chapter in UCI’s history.

Together, we will build a brilliant future... for this generation and the next.

Fiat Lux!
