A New Day

In this edition of UCI Magazine, we highlight the resilience, ingenuity and future vision that give rise to “A New Day” for UCI and our greater community as we emerge from a yearlong pandemic. In “Lessons Learned," scholars and faculty share how they met challenges during this unique period by coming up with myriad solutions and finding silver linings for going forward, while “The Anteater Experience” details how UCI continues to welcome a growing number of students, providing a foundation to help them thrive and become leaders. In “Lifting Prisoners," UCI law school professors discuss how they decided to do something, leading to the UC system’s first B.A. program for incarcerated individuals. Finally, our cover story, “Meeting the Future," showcases new plans for a state-of-the-art medical center and a college of health sciences to address the well-being of a growing – and aging – Orange County population while simultaneously advancing the frontiers of science. As Chancellor Howard Gillman notes in his letter on the following page, UCI has never stood still. Join us in welcoming this new day.
