All gifts to the UCI Program in Public Health, no matter their size, help the Program maintain and strengthen its reputation for excellence in education and research in health policy, global health, community health and our mission to service the community.
Defined as the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life, and promoting health through evidence-based choices by individuals and populations, Public Health requires the expertise of a varied and vast set of disciplines. UC Irvine Public Health focuses on discoveries and innovation by bringing together relevant expertise, constructing strategic intellectual bridges through our four pillars: research, reform, reflect, reveal. To support our faculty members, students, and community partners in their work, our development priority is to construct a Public Health multiplex. A dedicated Public Health building will increase the depth and frequency of interactions among our stakeholders, and help to translate our research into valuable tools, strategies and policies. Please contact Rebecca Rych to learn about a once-in-a-life-time opportunity to help name a Public Health multiplex building and leave a lasting legacy, and impact on Public Health.
UC Irvine scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrate high levels of academic achievement. Scholarships may also be design with respect to financial need or other specific criteria such as city of residence, academic major, or special skills. Academic accomplishments, leadership and work experience, campus and community activities, as well as financial need, may also be considered. Your scholarship gift will help reward, encourage, and assist Public Health students in pursuing academic excellence and leadership.
Your endowed gift to establish a named fellowship, internship or professorship will help us to recruit, retain and support high-level Public Health students and faculty. Gifts to this fund will help UCI Public Health build on our legacy of excellence in research.
UC Irvine GHREAT is committed to promoting global health awareness by developing a comprehensive global health research, education, and training program. The demand from students and faculty members to conduct GHREAT related research continues to grow rapidly. Your financial gift will help us continue global health research here and abroad.

Public Health faculty member and project scientist, Dr. Mojgan Sami, is on her way to Paris as a member of an official civil society delegation. She was invited by the International Environment Forum, to advocate for enhanced accountability, equity and justice in climate change policy at COP21 (November 30 - December 11, 2015).
