Global Education for All

Preparing the next generation of global problem solvers

Committed to educating the next generation of problem solvers and change makers, UC Davis is working towards Global Education for All—a goal aiming to provide 100% of our undergraduate, graduate, and professional students with global learning opportunities that change their lives and our world.

Developing global skills, in our backyard and beyond

Our students are developing skills needed to succeed in this interconnected world through global academic, experiential, and leadership opportunities such as:

  • study abroad and away,
  • internships, externships, and traineeships,
  • virtual international collaborations,
  • hands-on learning and research that take on global challenges in our backyard and beyond,
  • living and learning communities that connect culturally diverse students with each other and the resources of our global campus,
  • and more.
