Our Campus and Community

As UC San Diego transforms into a true living-learning community, we have the opportunity to reenvision our campus. But we don’t just do this through brick and mortar. Our efforts to engage our campus and community through outreach and education continue our nontradition of bold experimentation and risk-taking every day.

Engagement and Education

Education is more than what is learned in a lecture hall or a lab; it is about learning through exploration of our world. From the latest ocean research at Birch Aquarium to Geisel Library events that explore history and literature, your gift will help us engage our community with discoveries that are shaping our world.


Arts and Culture

UC San Diego is pioneering more than just science and engineering. Our programs across campus give our students and community opportunities to experiment and experience culture in new ways. From bringing diverse global artists to campus to attending student productions, your investment will foster our campus community's passion for the arts.


Inclusive Community

We take a proactive approach when it comes to cultivating an inclusive, welcoming environment where all students will thrive. Your support makes possible scholarships for promoting diversity on campus, mentoring and tutoring resources to ensure students realize their academic potential and cultural programs that foster dialogue and enrich our community.



Already one of the nation’s top NCAA Division II programs, UC San Diego athletics is entering a new era of advancement and expansion as we prepare to move to Division I. We have opened new state-of-the-art facilities, and we are growing athletic scholarships — changes that have energized our programs and our campus community. Your investment will ensure our Triton athletes continue to shine on the field and in the classroom.
