Campaign Steering Committee
“It’s not just the right time, it’s about time. We’ve been too shy too long. We have reasons to be out there, to be proud of who we are and proud of what we’ve accomplished. We can’t assume others will spread the word or provide the funding. Each of us needs to do our part.”

- “The time is right for UC Santa Cruz to take things to the next level. The campus is at the level of maturity not just in age but in terms of development of programs that makes this the right time for a campaign. We have a great number of programs that make huge contributions, ones richly deserving of support.”
