Academic Initiatives

As the world continues to advance, the need increases for research and innovation to address global challenges.

Coordinated through the Office of Academic Planning, the Academic Initiatives program provides funding for teams of faculty to address the emerging issues of broad scope and great impact.

The rise in infectious diseases, popularity of artificial intelligence, the need to improve the educational experiences of students and demand for creating hubs for scholars to collaborate on the latest technology has highlighted the importance for UCI to foster these initiatives.
