In the 2017 issue of the College of Letters and Science Magazine, we look to the future at a particularly exciting time in the life of the college and university. Our new chancellor, Gary May, has embarked on a year-long strategic planning process for UC Davis. As part of this larger initiative, the College of Letters and Science will likewise be building for the future over the coming year.
A key priority for both the campus and college will be ensuring that UC Davis remains a leader in providing students with the knowledge and tools they need to make their communities and the world better. As a group, the departments across the College of Letters and Science pursue curiosity-driven research and knowledge that help us prepare students to be ethical and innovative leaders and responsible citizens who ask “why” at least as often as they ask “how” or “for what.”
