Welcome to the start of the 2018-2019 academic year!

A message from Interim Vice Chancellor
Edgar J. Dormitorio

A year of leaps and bounds...

I'm not sure how far an Anteater (the real kind that eats ants with its tongue) can actually leap, but this year proves that UCI Anteaters can cover a lot of ground.

As we start this new academic year, we are thrilled to welcome new and returning students to another record-setting start.

Parent Engagement on the Rise at UCI
"The whole experience of UCI for both our children has been nothing but positive," says Nigel Ball, a parent of two UCI students. "That is why we're so keen to continue to help UCI be successful."

Over the last 10 years, Ball has seen his son, now an alumnus, and daughter embrace new challenges and develop as leaders through the opportunities available on campus. It was because of these transformative experiences that Ball and his wife, Pam, decided to become more involved first through the Campuswide Honors Program and later through more structured parent engagement activities.

And they are not alone. Increasingly, UCI parents are recognizing the value of increased participation in their children's university lives.
