From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe: UC research spans the globe
From addressing the Ebola outbreak in Africa to exploring aquatic environments in Antarctica, University of California researchers span the globe to serve the public and create new knowledge.
As UC President Janet Napolitano likes to say, “UC teaches for California and researches for the world.”
UC’s global reach can be seen from health to agriculture, sustainability to tech commercialization and bridge-building efforts such as the president-led UC Global Food Initiative and UC-Mexico Initiative.
UC’s global clout is reflected in its strong showing in international rankings. UC placed four campuses in the top 20 and nine in the top 150 in the Academic Ranking of World Universities and scored similarly in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
