Global Affairs
Invest in the Future of Global Education!

At UC Davis, we welcome the world to our community, and we connect our community with the world

Our world needs researchers who take collaborative action to resolve problems in sustainable and equitable ways. 

We need caring, curious, compassionate members of a global society who can understand issues in an intercultural context and from diverse points of view. 

And we need reimagined global gathering spaces so that every UC Davis graduate can access the experiences that are critical to gaining these perspectives.

The partnership of alumni and friends who share our vision makes all the difference.

We invite you to join us in advancing the interdisciplinary research and collaborations that will solve global challenges, and in preparing our students to create a more just and equitable world.

Please join us this Give Day by giving to any of our incredible challenge gifts, or providing general support for Global Affairs!
