We have your back
From delivering high-quality education and health care to making the research breakthroughs that launch new industries, the University of California is here for you.
Few threats to humanity are as urgent as the climate crisis
UC has declared a climate emergency. Across our campuses, hundreds of researchers are working to help California and the world move away from fossil fuels and develop scalable solutions to drought, wildfire and the other catastrophic impacts of a warming planet.
UC and the UC Student Association are pressing Congress to double the maximum award that low-income students receive for college through the Pell Grant program.
Health care is a basic human right
Through the UC Prime program, we're working to ensure that California doctors reflect the full diversity of the state, and that every California community has access to high-quality care.
UC’s historic mobilization against COVID
The COVID pandemic sparked an unprecedented mobilization of health care and research across the university, from identifying the first U.S. case of community transmission to participating in clinical trials for vaccines. We’ll stay in the fight as long as it takes to protect the UC community and the people of California.
Research that creates a better future
UC’s $6B research enterprise is one of the world’s largest. Discoveries made by our faculty and researchers launched some of California’s most iconic industries. Today, we’re spurring the next wave of economic growth through leading edge research in computer science, nanotechnology, clean energy, neuroscience, genomics and more.
