At UC Davis, we are more than just a university. We are a community addressing the world’s most pressing needs. We value interdisciplinary collaboration in our pursuit of knowledge and in our problem-solving. We are known for our curiosity, innovation and rich diversity of thought and community. Here, our graduate students learn alongside a diverse group of scholars, are mentored by distinguished faculty and work in state-of-the-art facilities.

Graduate students are the bedrock of UC Davis. Our graduate community makes important discoveries and contributions that move our campus, our region and the world forward. As scholars, researchers, teachers and community builders, our graduate community has a broad impact and helps shape UC Davis.

We ask big questions and we challenge conventional thinking — all in the pursuit of greater human understanding, discoveries and service to society. We invite you to join us.
