Life-changing inspiration will be business as usual in Aggie Square—the thriving innovation ecosystem UC Davis is creating in Sacramento. Aggie Square will connect UC Davis ingenuity with industry expertise to build vibrant, resilient communities—from new therapies that bring hope and healing, to education and training programs that create new opportunities for the jobs of the future. Spanning 25 acres on the Sacramento campus, Aggie Square will bring together UC Davis scholars across the disciplines to engage their students in community-based work and collaborations with business and industry. Through their ideas, innovations and partnerships, Aggie Square will become the epicenter of regional vitality and global impact—the nexus where biotech startups, clinics and cutting-edge labs coexist seamlessly with urban marketplaces, cultural venues and interactive learning environments for students of every age and interest.
Aggie Square is one of UC Davis' Big Ideas, which are the centerpieces of the university's second comprehensive campaign to support transformative new programs.
