Sustaining Humanity

Art, music and cultural expressions like language, food and style develop in parallel with great civilizations, offering platforms for advancing understanding and exchanging important ideas. UC Davis is a microcosm for this phenomenon. A university founded on agricultural sciences, its art program brought national prominence to California art, its performance hall is one of the finest in California, and its academic programs continue to find ways to enlighten and stimulate in ways that sustain and nurture society.
