UC Davis Big Ideas

UC Davis’ Big Ideas are forward-thinking, interdisciplinary programs and projects that will build upon the strengths of the university to positively impact the world for generations to come.

At UC Davis our researchers, scientists, clinicians and others are working on innovative and ambitious initiatives in sustainability, food, water, global education, animal and human health, and more. Every gift to support the Big Ideas has the potential to shape the future of UC Davis and lead to discoveries that will solve both California’s and the world’s most pressing problems.

UC Davis seeks to partner with passionate donors to help impact the future with these transformative projects. Join us today in being part of Big Ideas at UC Davis!
