Support a Cleaner, More Livable Future on Give Day!

Never has the hope for a cleaner, more livable future been more urgent than at this moment. UC Davis, the most sustainable university in the world, is at the forefront. 


ITS-Davis is the leading university center in the world on sustainable transportation. We conduct innovative and objective research that informs science-based transportation policy and strategic business decisions. Our programs emphasize advanced vehicle technologies, alternative fuels, land use planning, consumer behavior and new mobility. 


We have a strong commitment not just to research, but interdisciplinary education. The Institute hosts a widely acclaimed graduate degree program that draws from 34 academic disciplines to meet the world’s growing need for qualified transportation professionals. In addition to coursework and research, students interact with leaders from industry, government, public interest groups, and academia through seminars, internships, and visiting lectures


Ryan McCarthy ’09 is an influential Science and Technology Policy Advisor to the Chair of the California Air Resources Board.  He says his experience at ITS-Davis was invaluable.  “It’s the combination of analytical training, relevant issues, and exposure to researchers, policymakers, and business that contribute to ITS.  There’s no better place to explore the new technology and policy than ITS-Davis.  You can change the world with what you’re doing at ITS.  That may sound kind of hokey, but what they come up with may be the next new policy idea.”

Your gift supports the next generation of leaders like Ryan, who are having a tremendous influence on the policies and practices that will create a better future for us all.
