Our philosophy of learning, discovery and engagement ensures you will graduate with a strong academic foundation and an understanding of how your learning is relevant to the greater world.

UC Davis has a century of commitment to public service and seeking solutions to society's critical issues. We encourage you to integrate these goals into your education.

Your passion, intellectual curiosity and vision give our campus the energy and inspiration that make UC Davis special and your time here meaningful.

We are extremely proud of UC Davis. Our alumni have made significant and lasting contributions to society as leaders in government, business, technology, media and the arts. They share their knowledge and resources with the campus and help students build social and career networks before they graduate.
Members of our faculty have won MacArthur genius grants, Pulitzer prizes, Fulbright scholarships and election to the nation's top academies of the arts and sciences. They connect with students in the classroom, during first-year seminars and through research, arts and honors activities.

UC Davis continues to grow and offer new and exciting opportunities to learn and progress. We're looking forward to completion of the spectacular new Manetti Shrem Museum of Art and Ann E. Pitzer Center, as well as the renovation of our historic student union. Our new International Complex, scheduled for opening in the fall of 2016, will be a welcoming environment for collaboration among students and scholars from around the world.

Together, we are building a community that honors our diversity as individuals and reflects our belief in a shared set of values and mutual respect. We encourage you to explore together all that UC Davis has to offer.
Congratulations on becoming an Aggie!
