THE ORIGINAL AUTHORITY ON QUESTIONING AUTHORITY

The University of California, Santa Cruz is the boldest experiment in the history of public higher education. Our very founding in 1965 was a revolt against the educational status quo. We are not afraid to ask the hard questions and use unconventional methods in pursuit of scientific breakthrough, academic relevance, and the common good. Our work impacts public policy and quality of life in countless areas around the world. Now, in an era of increased conformity and risk aversion, we invite you to join us in pursuit of a more just, healthy, and sustainable world. Original ResearchFIND OUT MORE ABOUT UCSC
