College of Letters and Science
Your Generosity Supports Student Learning In and Out of the Classroom

 

Home to nearly half of all undergraduates at UC Davis — 40 percent of them the first in their families to attend a university — the College of Letters and Science is the largest and most diverse of the campus’s four colleges. Our faculty and students are at the heart of the UC Davis commitment to inclusive excellence, opening the doors of our university to all.

 

Of course, access is just a first step. Inside our classrooms, studios, and labs, our students engage deeply in learning across disciplinary boundaries. But some of the most profound and lasting student experiences happen beyond the classroom. Internships, travel abroad, research, and leadership opportunities are critical components of the world-class education offered through the College of Letters and Science. Students who pursue these beyond-the-classroom experiences not only benefit in their journey toward meaningful and fulfilling careers, but also bring their strengths to the world as a whole.

 

Philanthropy and alumni support help make all of this possible. 

 

The world beyond college is complex and ever-changing. When you give to the College of Letters and Science at UC Davis, you become a very real part of our students’ superpower to open the doors of opportunity for a lifetime.

 

Thank you for supporting the College of Letters and Science!
