In light of the current COVID-19 crisis, the college is refocusing its priorities on supporting our core mission of teaching and research during this period of uncertainty. Your support will address the critical educational needs of our students, which includes expanding technological access for remote learning, providing food, housing, and basic needs support, and increasing financial aid.
The **CA&ES Annual Fund is an unrestricted fund designated to support some of the College’s highest needs. Over the years it has helped fund student development and outreach programs, scholarships and new faculty start-up. With decreased state assistance to UC Davis, the financial burden has shifted to our students; in response, the CA&ES Annual Fund is currently funding three student support programs, as well as student development and outreach.
Another priority for the Dean is to continue to upgrade the college's field and laboratory facilities. Ensuring proper hands-on and real-life educational opportunities for our students is paramount to their success, so maintaining up-to-date research and practicum facilities is another use for the CA&ES Annual Fund.
