University of California, Davis

As one of the world’s leading cross-disciplinary research and teaching universities, UC Davis is also one of the top public universities in the United States. Located in the Sacramento region, the university has professional schools in medicine, law, business, veterinary medicine, nursing and education, in addition to 102 undergraduate majors and 101 graduate programs, more than half of which are interdisciplinary. UC Davis is known as a Public Ivy League school, a designation bestowed upon public universities whose prestige, academic rigor, competitive admissions processes, and overall undergraduate experience are similar to that of private Ivy League schools. UC Davis also provides the region's only academic health center. UC Davis Health, with a focus on discovering and sharing knowledge and providing the highest quality of care to the community, is a hub of innovation that encompasses UC Davis Medical Center, UC Davis School of Medicine, The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis and UC Davis Medical Group. UC Davis works with individuals, organizations and institutions throughout the greater Sacramento region to make our communities stronger, help our neighbors stay healthier and prepare our workforce for a better future. The university is also a powerful economic engine for California, generating $8.1 billion in statewide economic activity and supporting 72,000 jobs. Together, UC Davis’ two campuses — in Davis and Sacramento — constitute the second-largest individual employer in the Sacramento region, behind only the state of California. In addition, through partnering with the City of Sacramento on Aggie Square, UC Davis will bring nearly $5 billion to the local economy, allowing for expanded education opportunities and fostering economic development and job growth throughout the Sacramento region.
