At the University of California, Davis, we aspire to achieve groundbreaking discoveries and build a future for California and the world that lives up to the highest ideals of our land-grant university tradition.
This mission pervades all that we do. Thanks to the work and achievements of our global community of faculty, students, staff, alumni, friends, donors and partners, we are building a legacy of progress and discovery that is the hallmark of our great university. From our beautiful campus in Davis to our world-class health center in Sacramento, from the shores of Lake Tahoe to the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean, and from the farms of the Central Valley to the rice fields of Bangladesh, we are educating the next generation of leaders, performing groundbreaking research and turning discovery into solutions for the world’s most challenging problems.
Now in its second century, UC Davis’ tradition of excellence continues. Our student population is larger and more diverse than it has ever been. Our faculty continue to expand knowledge and make groundbreaking discoveries through their research and scholarship. We have launched the World Food Center to coalesce our world-leading efforts in food and health. We began construction on the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art as well as the Ann E. Pitzer Center, a new recital hall and classroom building. And in perfect display of our unity as one university, we have reached the successful conclusion of the Campaign for UC Davis. The first comprehensive fundraising campaign in UC Davis history, the Campaign for UC Davis raised $1.13 billion from nearly 110,000 donors and provided further evidence of UC Davis’ standing as one of the premier institutions of higher education in the world.
As a unified community of Aggies, we are carrying on the UC Davis traditions of world-class education and transformative research with the goal of changing our world for the better.
