Pillar 3: Great Partners
A core mission of UCI is service to the community. Effective service requires deeply inclusive community engagement – the exchange of information, ideas, and resources – to benefit both the university and the community. This engagement broadens our intellectual capital and leverages our social capital, allowing us to provide leadership in and solutions to diverse societal issues such as resource management, technology, healthcare, education, and social inequality. UCI, already aligned with the world’s leading research universities and recognized for addressing matters of great importance, embraces engagement through its excellent teaching, translational research, alumni participation, community outreach, and creative activity. We are committed to accomplishing much more. By lifting engagement up to a new level, meeting people where they are and valuing their expertise, we will serve as a model for the nation.
