“Innovation happens when we embrace the widest possible range of backgrounds, ideas, opinions and perceptions. The greater the mix, the more likely we will make discoveries and solve problems. We’re ready to show the world the kind of innovation that springs from UC Davis and its diverse community of thinkers.”

—Chancellor Gary May
