Campaign Priorities

Breakthrough work demands breaking through our goals in three key areas of support: Student Experience, Our Campus Community and Research and Innovation.

  • Student Experience

    The success of our next generation of innovators and leaders depends on effective, accessible learning. This is our central mission. And it’s nonnegotiable.

  • OUR CAMPUS COMMUNITY

    A nontradition like ours can only be fueled in the right environment. And we have the rare opportunity to reenvision the campus to better meet the evolving needs of our students, faculty, staff and neighbors.

  • RESEARCH & INNOVATION

    With world-class research, no other university is as well positioned to tackle society’s most dire concerns, converting discovery into impact. UC San Diego is making significant headway in solving the pressing issues that touch our lives or those close to us. And we’re just getting warmed up.
