Merced 2020: Building the Future

 

 

 

UC Merced is in the midst of an ambitious campus expansion that will position the university for academic distinction, research excellence and continued student success. The international award-winning, $1.3 billion project will add new classrooms and laboratories and increase access to higher education for thousands of students, while doubling the available space on campus by 2020.

Implementing this vision for growth is among the most important initiatives in UC Merced’s young history, and the External Relations team is a key part of this effort.
