Orange County, California, with its diverse and vibrant cultures, is a microcosm of the world. Here, when we think "world," we also think "family," since many of us have family in places like China and Vietnam, Mexico and Honduras, France and Russia. That cultural mix brings great opportunity for our university and our region.
UC Irvine aims to be the cornerstone of a new era of prosperity for California. We're tapping into the academic power and cultural knowledge of our incredibly diverse students and alumni.
We are perfectly positioned to take advantage of world markets and advance California's international leadership.
Our research and academic programs focus on understanding our differences and embracing our shared future. By working together across religious, ethnic and cultural lines, our students are building strategic cultural and business collaborations that benefit our entire state.
