Vision and Change Alignment Initiative

The Vision and Change Alignment Initiative is a campuswide effort that will shape the future of UC Merced. In Spring 2016, faculty, staff and students came together to share their vision for UC Merced as we transition from a startup institution to one that is maturing as takes its rightful place among the nation’s best universities.

The Vision and Change Alignment Map shown below includes the analysis and input from the Visioning Summits that took place last spring. This internal document will serve as our guide to ensure we remain focused on our goals and campus vision.


Collectively, we share an abiding passion for UC Merced and its ability to enrich the San Joaquin Valley, increase educational access throughout the region and the state, change the way education is delivered and to push the boundaries of research excellence for the benefit of all.
