UC Riverside is the face of the future of the University of California.  As the fastest growing campus in the UC system, UCR is celebrated for its world-class faculty, its breadth and variety of research, and its high caliber of instruction.

In the past few years, UC Riverside has hired hundreds of new, outstanding faculty, increased the number and size of the graduate programs, established new programs, and invested in new research.  While continuing to emphasize our already world-renowned programs, we are also working innovatively across disciplinary boundaries.  Many of UCR's programs are becoming increasingly well known for the quality of research and their creativity and innovative approaches to their subject matter.

Growth means expanding infrastructure, from the arts to engineering.  In 2013 UC Riverside will welcome the inaugural class to the new School of Medicine, the first new state medical school in California for more than four decades.  Across campus a number of new buildings have been recently completed, others will soon be finished, and still others are scheduled for construction in the near future.  As a result, UCR's facilities are state-of-the-art and extraordinarily conductive to dynamic research.

Whatever your discipline, UC Riverside is an exciting and intellectually stimulating place to be.  And, as the most ethnically divers campus in the UC system, it has a deserved reputation for being open and welcoming.

UC Riverside has always been known for the quality of its teaching and the accessibility of its faculty.  The campus prides itself on the close collegial relations between graduate students and their mentors.

UCR's faculty strive to provide our graduate students with the basic academic training and to instruct them in the best professional practices in order to equip them in every way for success in their careers.
