    The University of California’s mission can be distilled to its primary aims: teaching, research and public service. At heart of all three tenets is people.

    The University of California Office of the President (UCOP) is the core of the university system. Our diverse staff of dedicated employees propels UC’s mission through impactful work locally, in government centers and systemwide. Our careers reflect the expansiveness of the UC system, from health care, technology and legal fields to communications, policy and direct student and faculty support. UC is the largest employer in our state and for good reason — the array of career opportunities we offer is unmatched by any other industry.

    The University of California opened its doors in 1869 with just 10 faculty members and 38 students. Today, the UC system includes 10 campuses, more than 280,000 students and more than 227,000 faculty and staff, with 2.0 million alumni living and working around the world. From all backgrounds, ethnicities and incomes, UC attracts the best and brightest. UC undergraduates come from all over California, and they work hard to make it to college. In fact, 37 percent of UC students come from low-income families. UC's faculty are the drivers behind innovations in biotechnology, computer science, art and architecture — and they bring that knowledge, that greatness, directly to the classroom.
