The University
University
of California
California
(UC) is a public university system in the U.S. state
U.S. state
of California. Under the California
California
Master Plan for Higher Education, the University
University
of California
California
is a part of the state's three-system public higher education plan, which also include the California State University
California State University
system and the California
California
Community Colleges System. The University
University
of California
California
was founded on March 23rd, 1868, and operated temporarily in Oakland
Oakland
before moving to its new campus in Berkeley in 1873.[4][5] In March 1951, the University
University
of California began its reorganization, and in 1952 it became separated as a "university system" from the University
University
of California, Berkeley, with Robert Gordon Sproul being the first system-wide President and Clark Kerr being the first Chancellor of UC Berkeley. [6][7][8][9][10] Today, governed by a semi-autonomous Board of Regents, the University of California
California
has 10 campuses, a combined student body of 251,700 students, 21,200 faculty members, 144,000 staff members and over 1.86 million living alumni as of October 2016.[2] Its tenth and newest campus in Merced opened in fall 2005. Nine campuses enroll both undergraduate and graduate students; one campus, UC San Francisco, enrolls only graduate and professional students in the medical and health sciences. In addition, the UC Hastings College of Law, located in San Francisco, is legally affiliated with UC, but other than sharing its name is entirely autonomous from the rest of the system. The University
University

California
also manages or co-manages three national laboratories for the U.S. Department of Energy: Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), and Los Alamos National Laboratory
Los Alamos National Laboratory
(LANL).[11] Collectively, the colleges, institutions, and alumni of the University of California
California
make it the most comprehensive and advanced postsecondary educational system in the world, responsible for nearly $50 billion per year of economic impact.[12] UC campuses have large numbers of distinguished faculty in almost every academic discipline, with UC faculty and researchers having won at least 62 Nobel Prizes

UC Office of the President in Oakland

In 1849, the state of California
California
ratified its first constitution, which contained the express objective of creating a complete educational system including a state university. Taking advantage of the Morrill Land-Grant Acts, the California
California
Legislature established an Agricultural, Mining, and Mechanical Arts College in 1866.[14][15] However, it existed only on paper, as a placeholder to secure federal land-grant funds.[15] Meanwhile, Congregational
Congregational
minister Henry Durant, an alumnus of Yale, had established the private Contra Costa Academy, on June 20, 1853, in Oakland, California.[14] The initial site was bounded by Twelfth and Fourteenth Streets and Harrison and Franklin Streets in downtown Oakland[14] (and is marked today by State Historical Plaque No. 45 at the northeast corner of Thirteenth and Franklin). In turn, the Academy's trustees were granted a charter in 1855 for a College of California, though the College continued to operate as a college preparatory school until it added college-level courses in 1860.[14][15] The College's trustees, educators, and supporters believed in the importance of a liberal arts education (especially the study of the Greek and Roman classics), but ran into a lack of interest in liberal arts colleges on the American frontier
American frontier
(as a true college, the College was graduating only three or four students per year).[15] In November 1857, the College's trustees began to acquire various parcels of land facing the Golden Gate
Golden Gate
in what is now Berkeley for a future planned campus outside of Oakland.[14] But first, they needed to secure the College's water rights by buying a large farm to the east.[14] In 1864, they organized the College Homestead Association, which borrowed $35,000 to purchase the land, plus another $33,000 to purchase 160 acres (650,000 m²) of land to the south of the future campus.[16] The Association subdivided the latter parcel and started selling lots with the hope it could raise enough money to repay its lenders and also create a new college town.[14] But sales of new homesteads fell short.[14] Governor Frederick Low
Frederick Low
favored the establishment of a state university based upon the University
University
of Michigan plan, and thus in one sense may be regarded as the founder of the University
University
of California.[14][15] At the College of California's 1867 commencement exercises, where Low was present, Benjamin Silliman, Jr.
Benjamin Silliman, Jr.
criticized Californians for creating a state polytechnic school instead of a real university.[14][15] That same day, Low reportedly first suggested a merger of the already-functional College of California
California
(which had land, buildings, faculty, and students, but not enough money) with the nonfunctional state college (which had money and nothing else), and went on to participate in the ensuing negotiations.[14][15] On October 9, 1867, the College's trustees reluctantly agreed to join forces with the state college to their mutual advantage, but under one condition—that there not be simply an "Agricultural, Mining, and Mechanical Arts College", but a complete university, within which the assets of the College of California
California
would be used to create a College of Letters (now known as the College of Letters and Science).[14][15][17] Accordingly, the Organic Act, establishing the University
University
of California, was introduced as a bill by Assemblyman John W. Dwinelle on March 5, 1868, and after it was duly passed by both houses of the state legislature, it was signed into state law by Governor Henry H. Haight
Henry H. Haight
(Low's successor) on March 23, 1868.[14][15][18] However, as legally constituted, the new University was not an actual merger of the two colleges, but was an entirely new institution which merely inherited certain objectives and assets from each of them.[14] The University
University
of California's second president, Daniel Coit Gilman, opened its new campus in Berkeley in September 1873.[19] Earlier that year, Toland Medical College in San Francisco (founded in 1864) had agreed to become the University's "Medical Department"; it later evolved into UCSF. In 1878, the University
University
established Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco as its first law school. The California
California
Constitution was amended to designate Hastings as the "Law Department" of the University
University
of California
California
in consideration of a $100,000 gift from Serranus Clinton Hastings
Serranus Clinton Hastings
(though this was later transferred to statutory law during the shortening of what had become an extraordinarily long constitution by the 1960s). Hastings is the only UC campus not governed by the Regents of the University
University
of California,[20] as required as a condition of Hastings' gift. In August 1882, the California
California
State Normal School (whose original normal school in San Jose is now San Jose State University) opened a second school in Los Angeles to train teachers for the growing population of Southern California.[21] The Los Angeles school remained under the control of the San Jose school until 1919, when the state legislature transferred it to UC control and renamed it the Southern Branch of the University
University
of California.[22] In 1927, it became the University
University
of California
California
at Los Angeles; the "at" would be replaced with a comma in 1958. Meanwhile, Los Angeles had already surpassed San Francisco in the 1920 census to become the preeminent metropolis on the West Coast, and its residents sought more prestige and autonomy for their campus. UCLA became the first UC site outside of Berkeley to achieve coequal status with the Berkeley campus in March 1951, when the Regents approved a reorganization plan under which both the Berkeley and Los Angeles campuses would be supervised by chancellors reporting to the UC President.[6][7][8][9] During the 20th century, UC acquired additional satellite locations which, like Los Angeles, were all subordinate to administrators at the Berkeley campus. California
California
farmers lobbied for UC to perform applied research responsive to their immediate needs; in 1905, the Legislature established a " University
University
Farm School" at Davis and in 1907 a "Citrus Experiment Station" at Riverside as adjuncts to the College of Agriculture at Berkeley. In 1912, UC acquired a private oceanography laboratory in San Diego, which had been founded nine years earlier by local business promoters working with a Berkeley professor. In 1944, UC acquired Santa Barbara State College from the California
California
State Colleges, the descendants of the State Normal Schools.[23] After losing a second campus to UC, the state colleges' supporters arranged for the state constitution to be amended in 1946 to stop that from ever happening again.[23] Starting in 1958, the Regents began to promote each of these locations (along with San Francisco) to the rank of general campus and grant each the right to have their own chancellors, creating, respectively, UCSB (1958), UC Davis
UC Davis
(1959), UC Riverside (1959), UCSD
UCSD
(1960), and UCSF
UCSF
(1964).[24] In 1932, Will Keith Kellogg
Will Keith Kellogg
donated his Arabian horse ranch in Pomona, California, to the University
University
of California
California
system.[25] However, the land remained largely unused and ownership was transferred to the California State University
California State University
system in 1949. Kellogg's old ranch became the California
California
State Polytechnic University, Pomona.[26] In response to the state's continued population growth, UC established additional general campuses at Santa Cruz and Irvine in 1965.[24] UC Merced opened in fall 2005 to serve the San Joaquin Valley. The California
California
Master Plan for Higher Education of 1960 established that UC must admit undergraduates from the top 12.5% (one-eighth) of graduating high school seniors in California. Prior to the promulgation of the Master Plan, UC was to admit undergraduates from the top 15%. UC does not currently adhere to all tenets of the original Master Plan, such as the directives that no campus was to exceed total enrollment of 27,500 students (in order to ensure quality) and that public higher education should be tuition-free for California
California
residents. Five campuses, Berkeley, Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, and San Diego
San Diego
each have current total enrollment at over 30,000. After the state electorate severely limited long-term property tax revenue by enacting Proposition 13 in 1978, UC was forced to make up for the resulting collapse in state financial support by imposing a variety of fees which were tuition in all but name.[27][28][29] On November 18, 2010, the Regents finally gave up on the longstanding legal fiction that UC does not charge tuition by renaming the Educational Fee to "Tuition."[30] As part of its search for funds during the 2000s and 2010s, UC quietly began to admit higher percentages of highly accomplished (and more lucrative) students from other states and countries, but was forced to reverse course in 2015 in response to the inevitable public outcry and start admitting more California
California
residents.[31][32] Academics[edit] As of 2016, UC researchers and faculty are responsible for 1,745 inventions, which have led to the creation of 934 startups, and UC controls over 12,200 active patents.[2] On average, UC researchers create five new inventions per day.[2] Six of UC's ten campuses, (UCB, UC Davis, UCI, UCLA, UCSD, UCSB) are members of the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU).[2] Collectively, the system counts among its faculty (as of 2002):

California
library system contains one of the largest collections in the world. Each campus maintains its own library catalog and also participates in the systemwide union catalog, MELVYL. Besides on-campus libraries, the UC system also maintains two regional library facilities (one each for Northern and Southern California), which each accept older items from all UC campus libraries in their respective region. As of 2007, Northern Regional Library
Library
Facility is home to 4.7 million volumes, while SRLF is home to 5.7 million. Research[edit] Six of the campuses are members of the Association of American Universities, a collection of the top 62 research schools in North America. In 2006 the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) awarded the University
University

California
the SPARC Innovator Award for its "extraordinarily effective institution-wide vision and efforts to move scholarly communication forward", including the 1997 founding (under then UC President Richard C. Atkinson) of the California

(CDL) and its 2002 launching of CDL's eScholarship, an institutional repository. The award also specifically cited the widely influential 2005 academic journal publishing reform efforts of UC faculty and librarians in "altering the marketplace" by publicly negotiating contracts with publishers, as well as their 2006 proposal to amend UC's copyright policy to allow open access to UC faculty research.[34] On July 24, 2013 the UC Academic Senate adopted an Open Access Policy, mandating that all UC faculty produced research with a publication agreement signed after that date be first deposited in UC's eScholarship open access repository.[35] University

University
of California
California
campuses except Hastings College of the Law are governed by the Regents of the University
University
of California
California
as required by the Constitution of the State of California. Eighteen regents are appointed by the governor for 12-year terms. One member is a student appointed for a one-year term. There are also seven ex officio members—the governor, lieutenant governor, speaker of the State Assembly, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, president and vice president of the Alumni Associations of UC, and the UC president. The Academic Senate, made up of faculty members, is empowered by the Regents to set academic policies. In addition, the system-wide faculty chair and vice-chair sit on the Board of Regents as non-voting members. Originally, the President was directly in charge of the first campus, Berkeley. In turn, other UC locations (with the exception of Hastings College of the Law) were treated as off-site departments of the Berkeley campus. In March 1951, the Regents reorganized the university so that day-to-day "chief executive officer" functions for the Berkeley and Los Angeles campuses were transferred in 1952 to chancellors who were entrusted with a high degree of autonomy.[6][7][8][9] As noted above, the Regents promoted five additional UC locations to campuses and allowed them to have Chancellors of their own in a series of decisions from 1958 to 1964,[24] and the three campuses added since then have also been run by Chancellors. In turn, all Chancellors (again, with the exception of Hastings) report as equals to the UC President. Today, the UC Office of the President (UCOP) and the Office of the Secretary of the Regents of the University
University

share an office building in downtown Oakland

that serves as the UC system's headquarters. UC presidents[edit]

On August 13, 2007, President Dynes announced that he would step down effective June 2008, or until his replacement was selected. However, he also announced that Provost Wyatt (Rory) Hume would take over as the system's chief operating officer, effective immediately. Three state lawmakers had publicly demanded his resignation for his handling of the executive pay compensation scandal that stemmed from UC system Provost M. R. C. Greenwood's violation of UC conflict-of-interest rules. (She had created a management job at UC headquarters for a friend with whom she owned rental property, and a subordinate, Winston Doby, improperly helped create a year-long internship for her son at UC Merced.)[37][38][39] Incoming President Mark Yudof
Mark Yudof
took over on June 16, 2008.[40] Yudof was succeeded by Homeland Security Secretary and former Governor of Arizona Janet Napolitano, the first woman to hold the office of UC President.[41] Finances[edit] Main article: University
University

California
finances The State of California
California
currently (2015–2016) spends nearly $3 billion on the UC system, funding approximately 43.3% of the system. In 1980, the state funded 86.8% of the UC budget.[42] Percent increases of state support of the UC budget continue to shrink.[42] In May 2004, UC President Robert C. Dynes and CSU Chancellor Charles B. Reed struck a private deal, called the "Higher Education Compact", with Governor Schwarzenegger. They agreed to slash spending by about a billion dollars (about a third of the University's core budget for academic operations) in exchange for a funding formula lasting until 2011. The agreement calls for modest annual increases in state funds (but not enough to replace the loss in state funds Dynes and Schwarzenegger agreed to), private fundraising to help pay for basic programs, and large student fee hikes, especially for graduate and professional students. A detailed analysis of the Compact by the Academic Senate "Futures Report" indicated, despite the large fee increases, the University
University
core budget did not recover to 2000 levels.[43] Undergraduate student fees have risen 90% from 2003 to 2007.[44] In 2011, for the first time in UC's history, student fees exceeded contributions from the State of California.[45] The First District Court of Appeal in San Francisco ruled in 2007 that the University
University
of California
California
owed nearly $40 million in refunds to about 40,000 students who were promised that their tuition fees would remain steady, but were hit with increases when the state ran short of money in 2003.[46] Faculty pay[edit] Faculty compensation is comparable with institutions of similar academic ranking[47] but slightly higher than in the California
California
State University
University
system. According to the 2015–2016 payscale, the following pay ranges apply per academic year:[48][49]

Position Salary range

Lecturer $48,948–$132,204

Senior lecturer $87,528–$132,204

Assistant Professor $59,500–$77,200

Associate Professor $73,800–$93,300

Full Professor $86,800–$158,400

Note that the distinction between "academic year" and "fiscal year" salaries is important. Academic year salaries are for those whose work covers a standard 9-month academic calendar; fiscal year salaries (not listed here) are extrapolations of the academic year salary to cover the entire fiscal year (11 months, since the last month is considered usable as vacation) for those who provide full-year service. Fiscal year salaries are computed by using the monthly rate of the academic year salary and multiplying by 11. The UC system provides for merit pay higher than the nominal maximum of a salary range. However, once pay achieves a high threshold (varies by category, at least $300,000 in 2016), it requires either presidential or regental approval. Criticism and controversies[edit] The members of the UC governing structure have been criticized for confusion about their roles and responsibilities and for enjoying controversial perks. In 2008, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, the regional accreditor of the UC schools, criticized the UC system for "significant problems in governance, leadership and decision making" and "confusion about the roles and responsibilities of the university president, the regents and the 10 campus chancellors with no clear lines of authority and boundaries".[50] Besides substantial six-figure incomes, the UC President and all UC chancellors enjoy controversial perks such as free housing in the form of university-maintained mansions.[51] In 1962, Anson Blake's will donated his 10-acre (40,000 m2) estate (Blake Garden) and mansion (Blake House) in Kensington to the University
University
of California's Department of Landscape Architecture. In 1968, the Regents decided to make Blake House the official residence of the UC President. As of 2005, it cost around $300,000 per year to maintain Blake Garden and Blake House; the latter, built in 1926, is a 13,239-square-foot (1,229.9 m2) mansion with a view of San Francisco Bay.[51] All UC chancellors traditionally live for free in a mansion on or near campus that is usually known as University
University
House, where they host social functions attended by guests and donors.[52] UC San Diego's University
University
House was closed from 2004 to 2014 for $10.5 million in renovations paid for by private donors, which were so expensive because the 12,000-square-foot structure sits on top of a sacred Native American cemetery and next to an unstable coastal bluff.[53][54] In 2016, university system officials admitted that they monitored all e-mails sent to and from their servers.[55] Campuses and rankings[edit] At present, the UC system officially describes itself as a "ten campus" system consisting of the campuses listed below.[56] These campuses are under the direct control of the Regents and President.[57] Only ten campuses are listed on the official UC letterhead.[58] Although it shares the name and public status of the UC system, the Hastings College of the Law
Hastings College of the Law
is not controlled by the Regents or President; it has a separate board of directors and must seek funding directly from the Legislature. However, under the California
California
Education Code, the Juris Doctor
Juris Doctor
from Hastings is awarded in the name of the Regents and bears the signature of the President.[59] Furthermore, Education Code section 92201 states that Hastings "is affiliated with the University
University
of California, and is the law department thereof".[60] UC campuses are perennially ranked highly by various publications. Six UC campuses rank in the top 30 in U.S. News & World Report Best Global University

Admissions[edit] Each UC school handles admissions separately, but a student wishing to apply for an undergraduate or transfer admission uses one application for all UCs. Graduate and professional school admissions are handled directly by each department or program to which one applies. Freshmen[edit] Before 1986, students who wanted to apply to UC for undergraduate study could only apply to one campus. Students who were rejected at that campus that otherwise met the UC minimum eligibility requirements were redirected to another campus with available space. Students who didn't want to be redirected were refunded their application fees. In 1986, that system changed to the current "multiple filing" system, in which students can apply to as many or as few UC campuses as they want on one application, paying a fee for each campus. This significantly increased the number of applications to the Berkeley and Los Angeles campuses, since students could choose a campus to attend after they received acceptance letters, without fear of being redirected to a campus they did not want to attend.[86] The University
University
of California
California
accepts fully eligible students from among the top one-eighth (1/8) of California
California
public high school graduates through regular statewide admission, or the top 9% of any given high school class through Eligibility in the Local Context (see below). All eligible California
California
high school students who apply are accepted to the University, though not necessarily to the campus of choice.[87][88] Eligible students who are not accepted to the campus(es) of their choice are placed in the "referral pool", where campuses with open space may offer admission to those students; in 2003, 10% of students who received an offer through this referral process accepted it.[89] In 2007, about 4,100 UC-eligible students who were not offered admission to their campus of choice were referred to UC Riverside
UC Riverside
or the system's newest campus, UC Merced.[90] In 2015, all UC-eligible students rejected by their campus of choice were redirected to UC Merced, which is now the only campus that has space for all qualified applicants.[91] The old undergraduate admissions were conducted on a two-phase basis. In the first phase, students were admitted based solely on academic achievement. This accounted for between 50 and 75% of the admissions. In the second phase, the university conducted a "comprehensive review" of the student's achievements, including extracurricular activities, essay, family history, and life challenges, to admit the remainder. Students who did not qualify for regular admission were "admitted by exception"; in 2002, approximately 2% of newly admitted undergraduates were admitted by exception.[92] The process for determining admissions varies. At some campuses, such as Santa Barbara and Santa Cruz, a point system is used to weight grade point average, SAT
SAT
Reasoning or ACT scores, and SAT
SAT
Subject scores, while at San Diego, Berkeley, and Los Angeles, academic achievement is examined in the context of the school and the surrounding community, known as a holistic review. Race, gender, national origin, and ethnicity have not been used as UC admission criteria since the passing of Proposition 209. However, this information is collected for statistical purposes. Eligibility in the Local Context[edit] Eligibility in the Local Context, commonly referred to as ELC, is met by applicants ranked in the top 9% of their high school class in terms of performance on an 11-unit pattern of UC-approved high school courses. Beginning with fall 2007 applicants, ELC also requires a UC-calculated GPA of at least 3.0. Fully eligible ELC students are guaranteed a spot at one of UC's undergraduate campuses, though not necessarily at their first-choice campus or even to a campus to which they applied.[87] Early Academic Outreach Program[edit] The Early Academic Outreach Program (EAOP) was established in 1976 by University
University
of California
California
(UC) in response to the State Legislature's recommendation to expand post-secondary opportunities to all of California's students including those who are first-generation, socioeconomically disadvantaged, and English-language learners.[93] As UC's largest academic preparation program, EAOP
EAOP
assists middle and high school students with academic preparation, admissions requirements, and financial aid requirements for higher education.[94] The program designs and provides services to foster students’ academic development, and delivers those services in partnership with other academic preparation programs, schools, other higher education institutions and community/industry partners.[95] Fall of 2017 admitted freshmen[edit]

Transfer students[edit] The University
University
of California
California
admits a significant number of transfer students primarily from the California
California
Community Colleges System.[105] Approximately one out of three UC students begin at a community college before graduating.[105] In evaluating a transfer student's application the universities conduct a "comprehensive review" process that includes consideration of grade point averages of the generally required, transferable and or related courses for the intended major. The review may also include consideration of an applicant's enrollment in selective honor courses or programs, extracurricular activities, essay, family history, life challenges, and the location of the student's residence. Different universities emphasize different factors in their evaluations.[106] Fall of 2015 admitted transfer students[edit]

The University
University
of California
California
has a long tradition of involvement in many enterprises that are often geographically or organizationally separate from its general campuses, including national laboratories, observatories, hospitals, continuing education programs, hotels, conference centers, an airport, a seaport, and an art institute. National laboratories[edit]

This map shows the locations of the ten UC campuses and the national laboratories associated with UC. A third national laboratory associated with UC is in Los Alamos, New Mexico.

The University
University
of California
California
directly manages and operates one United States Department of Energy National Laboratory:[116]

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
(LBNL) (Berkeley, California)

UC is a limited partner in two separate private limited liability companies that manage and operate two other Department of Energy national laboratories:

Los Alamos National Laboratory
Los Alamos National Laboratory
(LANL) (Los Alamos, New Mexico) operated by Los Alamos National Security, LLC. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
(LLNL) (Livermore, California) operated by Lawrence Livermore National Security, LLC.

Laboratory missions[edit] Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
conducts unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines with key efforts focused on fundamental studies of the universe, quantitative biology, nanoscience, new energy systems and environmental solutions, and the use of integrated computing as a tool for discovery. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
uses advanced science and technology to ensure that U.S. nuclear weapons remain reliable. LLNL also has major research programs in supercomputing and predictive modeling, energy and environment, bioscience and biotechnology, basic science and applied technology, counter-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and homeland security. It is also home to the most powerful supercomputers in the world. Los Alamos National Laboratory
Los Alamos National Laboratory
focuses most of its work on ensuring the reliability of U.S. nuclear weapons. Other work at LANL involves research programs into preventing the spread of weapons of mass destruction and US national security, such as protection of the US homeland from terrorist attack. The UC system's ties to the three laboratories have occasionally sparked controversy and protest, because all three laboratories have been intimately linked with the development of nuclear weapons. During the World War II
World War II
Manhattan Project, Lawrence Berkeley Lab developed the electromagnetic method for separation of uranium isotopes used to develop the first atomic bombs. The Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore labs have been involved in designing U.S. nuclear weapons from their inception until the shift into stockpile stewardship after the end of the Cold War. Historically the two national laboratories in Berkeley and Livermore named after Ernest O. Lawrence, have had very close relationships on research projects, as well as sharing some business operations and staff. In fact, LLNL
LLNL
was not officially severed administratively from LBNL
LBNL
until the early 1970s. They also have much deeper ties to the university than the Los Alamos Lab, a fact seen in their respective original names; the University

Radiation Laboratory at Livermore. Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore[edit] The UC system's ties to the labs have so far outlasted all periods of internal controversy. However, in 2003, the U.S. Department of Energy for the first time opened the Los Alamos National Laboratory
Los Alamos National Laboratory
(LANL) contract for bidding by other vendors. UC entered into a partnership with Bechtel Corporation, BWXT, and the Washington Group International, and together they created a private company called Los Alamos National Security, LLC (LANS). The only other bidder on the LANL contract was a Lockheed Martin
Lockheed Martin
Corporation-created company that included, among others, the University
University
of Texas System. In December 2005, a seven-year contract to manage the laboratory was awarded to the Los Alamos National Security, LLC.[117] On June 1, 2006, the University
University
of California
California
ended its direct involvement in operating Los Alamos National Laboratory. Management of the laboratory was taken over by Los Alamos National Security, LLC. Approximately 95% of the former 10,000 UC employees at LANL were rehired by LANS to continue working at LANL. On October 1, 2007, the University
University

ended its direct involvement in operating the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Management of the laboratory was taken over by Lawrence Livermore National Security, LLC, a limited liability company whose members are Bechtel National, the University
University
of California, Babcock & Wilcox, the Washington Division of URS Corporation, Battelle Memorial Institute, and The Texas A&M University
University
System. Other than UC appointing three members to the two separate board of directors (each with eleven members) that oversee LANS and LLNS, UC now has virtually no responsibility for or direct involvement in either LANL or LLNL. UC policies and regulations that apply to UC campuses and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
in California no longer apply to LANL and LLNL, and the LANL and LLNL
LLNL
directors no longer report to the UC Regents or UC Office of the President. High-performance networking[edit] The University
University

California
is a founding and charter member of the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California, a nonprofit organization that provides high-performance Internet-based networking to California's K-20 research and education community. Other national research centers[edit] From September 2003 to July 2016, UC managed a contract valued at more than $330 million to establish and operate a University
University
Affiliated Research Center (UARC) at the NASA Ames Research Center
NASA Ames Research Center
at Moffett Federal Airfield —the largest grant ever awarded the University. UC Santa Cruz managed the UARC for the University

Medical Center, comprising two distinct hospitals:

UC San Diego
UC San Diego
Medical Center, Hillcrest, in San Diego; Jacobs Medical Center, in La Jolla; and

UCSF
UCSF
Medical Center, in San Francisco.

Each medical center serves as the primary teaching site for that campus's medical school. UCSF
UCSF
is perennially among the top five programs in both research and primary care, and both UCLA
UCLA
and UCSD consistently rank among the top fifteen research schools, according to annual rankings published by U.S. News and World Report.[118] The teaching hospitals affiliated with each school are also highly regarded - the UCSF
UCSF
Medical Center was ranked the number one hospital in California
California
and number 5 in the country by U.S. News and World Report's 2017 Honor Roll for Best Hospitals in the United States.[119] UC also has a sixth medical school— UC Riverside
UC Riverside
School of Medicine, the only one in the UC system without its own hospital. In the latter half of the 20th century, the UC hospitals became the cores of full-fledged regional health systems; they were gradually supplemented by many outpatient clinics, offices, and institutes. Three UC hospitals are actually county hospitals that were sold to UC, which means that UC currently plays a major role in providing healthcare to the indigent. The medical hospitals operated by UC Irvine (acquired in 1976), UC Davis
UC Davis
(acquired in 1978), and UC San Diego (acquired in 1984), each began as the respective county hospitals of Orange County, Sacramento County, and San Diego
San Diego
County. As of 2016, UC medical centers handle each year about 4.5 million outpatient visits, 356,000 emergency room visits, and 165,000 inpatient admissions.[2] There are two medical centers that bear the UCLA
UCLA
name, but are not operated by UCLA: Harbor– UCLA
UCLA
Medical Center and Olive View – UCLA Medical Center. They are actually Los Angeles County-operated facilities that UCLA
UCLA
uses as teaching hospitals. UC Extension[edit] For over a century, the University
University
has operated a continuing education program for working adults and professionals. At present, UC Extension enrolls over 500,000 students each year in over 17,000 courses. One of the reasons for its large size is that UC Extension is a dominant provider of Continuing Legal Education
Continuing Legal Education
and Continuing Medical Education in California. For example, the systemwide portion of UC Extension (directly controlled by the UC Office of the President) operates Continuing Education of the Bar under a joint venture agreement with the State Bar of California. UC Agriculture and Natural Resources[edit] The University
University
of California
California
division of Agriculture and Natural Resources plays an important role in the State's agriculture industry, as mandated by the UC's legacy as a land-grant institution. In addition to conducting agriculture and Youth development
Youth development
research, every county in the state has a field office with county farm advisors. The county offices also support 4-H
4-H
programs and have nutrition, family and consumer sciences advisors who assist local government. Currently, the division's University
University
of California
California
4-H Youth Development Program[120] is a national leader in studying thriving in the field of youth development.[citation needed] UC Natural Reserve System[edit] The NRS was established in January 1965 to provide UC faculty with large areas of land where they could conduct long-term ecosystem research without having to worry about outside disturbances like tourists. Today, the NRS manages 39 reserves that total more than 756,000 acres (3,060 km2). Travel and conference facilities[edit]

UC Berkeley's Cal Alumni Association operates travel excursions for alumni (and their families) under its "Cal Discoveries Travel" brand (formerly BearTreks); many of the tour guides are Berkeley professors. CAA also operates the oldest and largest alumni association-run family camp in the world, the Lair of the Golden Bear. Located at an altitude of 5600 feet in Pinecrest, California, the Lair is a home-away-from-home for almost 10,000 campers annually. Its attendees are largely Cal alumni and their families, but the Lair is open to everyone. Berkeley Lab operates its own hotel, the Berkeley Lab Guest House, available to persons with business at the Lab itself or UC Berkeley. UCLA
UCLA
Housing & Hospitality Services operates two on-campus hotels, the 61-room Guest House and the 254-room Meyer & Renee Luskin Conference Center, and a lavish off-campus conference center at Lake Arrowhead (with a mix of chalet-like condominiums, lodge rooms, and stand-alone cottages). During the summer, the Lake Arrowhead conference center hosts the Bruin Woods vacation programs for UCLA alumni and their families. Separately, UCLA
UCLA
Health operates the 100-room Tiverton House just south of the UCLA
UCLA
campus to serve its patients and their families. UC Santa Cruz
UC Santa Cruz
leased the University
University
Inn and Conference Center in downtown Santa Cruz from 2001 to 2011 for use as off-campus student housing. The UC system's Education Abroad program operates two mini-campuses that support UC students, faculty, and alumni overseas: California House in London
London
and La Casa de la Universidad de California
California
in Mexico City. UC Center Sacramento supports students interning with the California
California
state government. None of these facilities have on-site housing, but there is also a UC Washington Center in Washington, D.C. with a dormitory for students interning with the federal government.
