Without exception, University of California campuses have distinguished themselves as powerhouses of invention, discovery and knowledge creation, generating the kinds of intellectual contributions that spawn entire industries, creating rewarding jobs, advance human knowledge and fundamentally change how we live our lives. With its growing and impressive research portfolio, UC Merced is destined to continue this proud tradition. Through its discoveries in the fields ranging from alternative energy to water resource management and health and cognitive sciences, UC Merced is poised to contribute greatly to the economic recovery of California and the nation through important scientific breakthroughs, discoveries and inventions.
The 2020 Project is a public-private partnership that will provide the physical capacity needed to grow to 10,000 students. At a time of increasing budget constraints on public university systems and growing financial demands for limited state resources, it is fitting that the first American research university of the 21st century is carrying out this project through an alternative delivery strategy. By leveraging private-sector expertise and combining the pricing of lifecycle design, construction, financing, operations and maintenance costs, the 2020 Project will enable UC Merced to advance its teaching, research and public-service mission in the most cost-effective and rapid way possible.
