UCR: The One to Watch

UCR is an institution on the move, located in one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the U.S., boasting world-class academics and global research impacts. The campus provides a robust set of undergraduate, graduate, and professional degree programs to one of the most diverse student bodies in the nation.

UCR is a member of the University Innovation Alliance, and The Education Trust recently named UCR a “top-performing institution” for African American and Latino/a students. At the graduate level, UCR opened the first public School of Medicine on the U.S. West Coast in more than 40 years and launched a new School of Public Policy to benefit the residents of Inland Southern California.

Students who earn a UCR degree are transformed by the people they meet, the courses they take, and the careers they pursue. Challenging majors, unique research experiences, and inspiring professors lead students from zones of comfort and convenience into areas of exploration that are as thrilling as they are new. 

Undergraduate Education cultivates student success by providing academic support, experiential learning, and research opportunities.

University Honors engages students, faculty, and staff in high-impact scholarship, creativity, and innovation.

Education Abroad is UCR Students' gateway to high-quality international opportunities, offered through academic coursework and cultural/language immersion.

At UCR, students and faculty from different backgrounds and cultures come together to make our community stronger, sharper, and smarter. Bring your brilliance to UCR. We'll help you share it with the world.
