Strategic Plan

New Paths for Our Brilliant Future

UCI Private Support Relative to Other UC Campuses

Private funding supports our growth and programming, as well as provides scholarships, fellowships and other student services. We will ensure our future financial footing through increased philanthropic support, with an aim of doubling our 2015 levels within three years. As of July 2016, we achieved our strategic goal ahead of schedule.

In 2017, UCI received the largest gift in its history. The $200 million gift from Susan and Henry Samueli will name the first-of-its kind College of Health Sciences focused on interdisciplinary integrative health.  We have made tremendous strides and University Advancement reported a total of $320.1 million in gifts in 2016-2017, moving UCI up to 4th in private support across the UC system.
