University of California, Riverside
UC Riverside is on the rise. A member of the world’s most prestigious public university system, ours is an institution powered by an entrepreneurial spirit, a record of innovation and results, and a commitment to excellence and collaboration across disciplines.
Situated on nearly 1,200 scenic acres in Inland Southern California, UCR’s strong core programs and new and emerging disciplines are housed within three colleges, four professional schools, and more than 20 interdisciplinary research centers — and our campus continues to grow.
With more than 26,000 students and 1,300 faculty — including two Nobel Prize winners and 26 members of the National Academies of Science and Medicine — we are pioneering research with economic, scientific, and social impact on the real-world challenges we face in California and beyond.
The reach and importance of our work is gaining in prominence. We rank among the top 1 percent of universities worldwide by the Center for World University Rankings and one of the nation’s top 12 public universities by Forbes.
