We are a campus of dedicated problem solvers who care deeply about making a difference in the world. Please join us and support our work.
You can start right here. Right now.
The contribution you make today, will support:
UCI’s Blum Center is developing innovative courses to introduce students to the complex issue of poverty in the 21st century, and establishing field sites to provide students with opportunities to make meaningful contributions to alleviating poverty at home and abroad. Key elements of the curriculum will be made available to everyone online.
The Center will support pioneering, interdisciplinary research to develop human-centered, contextually sensitive and sustainable solutions to poverty that draw upon the campus’ extensive expertise in areas such as financial inclusion, information technology, water management, energy efficiency and climate change.
The Center will cultivate long-term partnerships in Southern California and at locations around the world so that the vast stock of ingenuity and concern available on our campus can be made available to those in need on terms that are ethical, enduring and effective. Throughout each year, the Blum Center will host distinguished speakers and events ranging from workshops and conferences to art exhibitions and creative performances.
