UC in the Valley
UC's involvement in the San Joaquin Valley more than one hundred
years ago helped transform its once harsh environment into the fertile
land known today.
UC's commitment to the region is greater than ever with nearly 40
UC offices and facilities across the valley.
And UC opened its Merced campus in 2005, further strengthening
its contributions to the educational opportunities, health and economic
growth of Valley communities.
The University of California extends well beyond
the borders of its campuses, national labs and medical centers.
With locations and programs ranging from cooperative extension stations

across the state and around the nation.
