Intercollegiate Athletics

As a part of our Brilliant Future campaign, UCI Athletics is seeking support for $20 million in resources that will sustain the university’s commitment to athletics. By securing philanthropic funding for enhanced facilities, providing scholarships, or safeguarding the mental and physical wellness of our student-athletes, the Anteater Club ensures that UCI Athletics and our student-athletes have the necessary resources for success in the classroom, in competition, and for a lifetime of achievement beyond collegiate athletics.

Thank you in advance for your support and playing a pivotal role in investing in champions, impacting student-athletes and influencing lives.

Executive Director of Development, Athletics

Funding Priorities


Enhanced scholarship funding will elevate our programs and enable Anteater Athletics to continue to recruit the very best student-athletes.


To enrich the performance and well-being of our student-athletes, we plan to introduce additional programming in the areas of sports nutrition, sports medicine, mental health and wellness, and sports science.


Long-overdue renovations to our facilities will lead to first-class competition, recruitment and game day experience for patrons and the community.
