Though still a relatively young campus, UC Santa Cruz has earned national and international recognition for quality research and world-class teaching. Our faculty, researchers, and students enjoy an exciting environment and the opportunity to work across disciplinary boundaries as they approach today's most challenging problems in human health, the environment, and advanced technology. ACCESS (Baccalaureate Bridge to the Biomedical Sciences) is an academic bridge program for community college students interested in pursuing a career in research science. Students may be eligible for enrichment activities and a summer research institute aimed at building skills that increase transfer and retention rates.

The Jack Baskin School of Engineering is known for interdisciplinary research and education centered in six departments: Applied Mathematics, Biomolecular Engineering, Computational Media, Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Statistics. Faculty from these departments collaborate on teaching and research activities, and collaborations can extend across campus and beyond, to other academic institutions and industry partners. These extended collaborations provide students with rich and diverse learning environments.

UCSC’s Hispanic-Serving Institution team is committed to long-term change efforts that ensure Latinx students whole-heartedly take part in the UCSC community, find success on their educational journey and eventually graduate to make an impact in the world. At the core of this commitment is a willingness to reexamine our traditional educational systems and explore new ways to provide resources and support to students who have not received it historically. Today, UCSC is one of more than 472 universities to meet the federal benchmark as a Hispanic Serving Institution. The designation has paved the way for three multi-million dollar grants dedicated to supporting Latino and underrepresented students at the university.

The mission of Information Technology Services (ITS) is to provide high quality infrastructure, support, and innovation in the delivery of services and security to UCSC. We strive to help make it easier for everyone at UCSC to learn, teach, research, and work through the effective deployment and use of information technology.

The University's main campus is spread across more than 2,000 acres and includes over 500 buildings comprising more than 8 million square feet. Grounds Services is committed to customer service in support of Physical Plant's mission to provide an economically and efficiently operated, safe and well maintained campus environment. Grounds Services maintains campus lands and developed landscapes, roads, paths, hardscapes, turf, exterior athletic facilities, irrigation, tree maintenance, provides pest control, storm drain maintenance, refuse/recycling services and vegetation management.
