Campus Transformation

Beyond the new buildings, there is an intellectual and cultural transformation underway that is reenergizing the student experience and sparking breakthrough research and innovation. The campus is on its way to becoming a true learning-living environment and a destination for art, culture, recreation, and world-class patient care.

Our Mission

UC San Diego will transform California and a diverse global society by educating, generating and disseminating knowledge and creative works, and engaging in public service.

Our Vision

We will align our efforts to be a student-centered, research-focused, service-oriented public university.
