Since the beginning, we’ve outgrown expectations. UC Davis was founded in 1908 to serve the state of California. We do and we always will. And today, the seed that was planted those years ago has grown into one of the world’s top universities.

UC Davis is a tier one research university. Discoveries made by our students and faculty continue to improve the lives of people around the world. Several of our programs are among the best in the country and have been for decades. We are the top ranked university in the nation in the fields of agriculture, veterinary medicine, campus sustainability, and diversity, inclusiveness and internationalization. UC Davis enrolls more than 38,000 students a year in nearly 110 academic majors and over 100 graduate degrees. In addition to our undergraduate and graduate programs, we have professional schools in medicine, law, business, veterinary medicine, nursing and education.

At UC Davis, we don’t just maintain. We improve. We don’t just think about today. We solve for tomorrow. We don’t just do what’s needed. We do what’s just. That’s how we answer the questions the world has yet to ask. Grounded in how we started, we grow out of every challenge we take on. We don’t do what’s expected. We don’t wait until we're told. We do what’s necessary. Before it is. UC Davis. Outgrow the Expected.
