For almost 150 years, the University of California has educated the
brightest minds and helped California become a beacon of innovation.
Our campuses routinely are ranked among the best in the world.
But our reach extends beyond campus borders.
Our people connect the dots, exchange ideas, make advancements
and unlock the secrets and mysteries of the universe every day.
They engage local governments and underserved schools,
protect the environment and push the boundaries of space.
From the very first class in 1869 to this very moment, the
University of California has provided the sparks of illumination
that have fired imaginations, industries, California and the world.
What is born here ensures our best days remain ahead of us.
