As a nation, our greatest resource is today’s students and young people. At UCI, we are preparing our students to succeed – not just academically, but by fostering health, wellness and life skills to overcome the inevitable challenges they will encounter. We enable classroom success by helping students cope with anxiety, depression, financially insecurity, learning disabilities or feelings of isolation.
The Center for Student Wellness & Health Promotion, The Counseling Center, and Campus Assault Resources and Education together facilitate academic excellence by promoting strong minds, healthy bodies, enlivened spirits and clear aspirations. Demands for these services have grown dramatically in recent years, and the expanding space and staff will support the increasing needs.
UCI fosters inclusiveness for students with disabilities by providing services and resources that enable them to fully experience UCI with the same opportunities and advantages as any other student. The Disability Services Center provides federally mandated, disability-related accommodations, tools, resources and services to eligible UCI students, Extension and Summer Session students, program participants and visitors to campus.
UCI has earned recognition as a top veteran-friendly school, thanks to the efforts driven by the Veterans Services Center, which serves veterans, reservists and their dependents. The center helps veterans obtain the educational benefits to which they are entitled, join peer mentoring groups, apply for scholarships and grants, and get referrals to counseling or other campus resources, as needed.
DCP operates as both a career development and preparation resource for UCI students and a recruitment center for local, regional and national organizations. DCP is the driving force behind UCI’s efforts to accommodate the changing needs of employers and prepare UCI students with impactful and diverse mentoring, internship and career opportunities.
An expansion of the existing testing services space ensures that new and continuing students receive proper placement in select introductory courses and increased help to assess their readiness for university-level work. Academic Testing Services also administers the university’s Language Testing Programs and provides testing accommodations for students with verified disabilities.
Our dynamic world requires institutions of higher learning to be flexible and adaptive with their teaching methods and approaches – the way we teach students today should not look identical to the way they were taught a century ago. Your investment will boost efforts to advance proven, evidence-based teaching methods that enhance the academic success of students both in classrooms and online.
