Located just 50 miles east of Los Angeles, UCR offers it all – esteemed academics, faculty, research, resources, a strong Asian Pacific community, ongoing events, and proximity to desert, mountain and coastal destinations. Explore our active, inclusive campus. No matter who you are or where you’re from, you are welcome here.
In 1982, Asian Pacific students made up 10% of UCR’s undergraduate population, and 8% of the graduate student body. Today, nearly 40% of the entire student body is comprised of Asian Pacific students. Through Asian Pacific Student Programs, the Asian Pacific Islander Student Advisory Council (APISAC), and various student organizations, we unite as a community to support each other and to enrich the campus with engaging cultural activities and events.
