UC Irvine

Located in the heart of Orange County in a city named “Safest City in America” for twelve consecutive years, the University of California, Irvine enjoys the best of what Southern California has to offer: beaches, mountains, deserts, and a broad variety of cultural, entertainment and intellectual activities. At the center of campus, the 21-acre Daniel Aldrich Park creates an oasis of serenity from which buildings radiate in a circular pattern, integrating natural open space with modern structure.

UCI is among the fastest-growing UC campuses, is a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU), and is consistently ranked among the nation’s best universities, public and private. Recent additions to UC Irvine’s growing number of academic and professional programs include law, public health, pharmaceutical sciences and nursing science.

UC Irvine is committed to excellence through diversity. It strives to enroll academically talented students representative of the population, including those traditionally underrepresented in various academic fields. UCI’s goal of promoting diversity among faculty, students and staff shapes endeavors in teaching, research and public service.
