The program is seeking applicants with the potential to bring to their academic careers the critical perspective that comes from their non-traditional educational background or understanding of the experiences of members of groups historically underrepresented in higher education.

UCI ranked No.1 "Coolest School" in the nation

August 2014

UCI has placed first in Sierra magazine’s eighth annual ranking of the country’s “Coolest Schools,” marking the fifth consecutive year the university has been included among the top 10 “greenest” campuses nationwide. In 2008, UCI pledged to improve its energy efficiency by 20 percent by 2020, then reached this goal seven years early. Examples of UCI's sustainability efforts include three on-site solar power projects and a 19-megawatt cogeneration plant with turbines powered by combustion and steam. The school's water-recycling program saves more than 210 million gallons per year.
