Giving: Supporting DUE

Since the very start of UC Irvine’s history, donors have and continue to help create exciting opportunities for students.

One of the most inspiring ways that donors are able to help students experience opportunities they wouldn’t normally have, is through the Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE). Through DUE, students are introduced to a wide-range of experiences, from the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) to study abroad, to internships in D.C and Sacramento. DUE hosts the Campuswide Honors Program and reaches out in many ways to UCI’s very diverse student population. DUE is proud to serve underrepresented, and low-income students. These high achieving individuals are often times the first in their family to attend and graduate college. When funds are available from donors, it helps to create more resources, and this makes a large impact on the lives of many students as well as the University. This is true impact to the community when each year’s graduating class brings their talents to the work force.

We welcome your support.

Best wishes,
