We loan because...
We want to allow others the opportunity to succeed and be able to stand on our shoulders as we were able to stand on the shoulders of our teachers, mentors, and supporters.

About us
The University of California, Merced is no ordinary university.

- We are lifelong pioneers.
- We are not afraid to take risks and learn from our mistakes.
- We are a community comprised of individuals with multiple cultures, lifestyles, and beliefs, and we celebrate this diversity for the breadth of ideas and perspectives it brings.
- We strive to make the world a better place and encourage the success of our peers.

The University of California, Merced is the first American research university of the twenty-first century. As the tenth campus of the University of California, UC Merced will achieve excellence in carrying out the University's mission of teaching, research and service, benefiting society through discovering and transmitting new knowledge and functioning as an active repository of organized knowledge. As a key tenet in carrying out this mission, UC Merced promotes and celebrates the diversity of all members of its community.

The twenty-first century has opened with the promise of new ways of connecting people to new knowledge and to one another. UC Merced opens as a network, not simply a single place, linking its students, faculty and staff to the educational resources of the state, nation and world. The idea of network extends to UC Merced’s relationships with neighboring institutions: educational, cultural and social. UC Merced seeks strong and mutually supportive relationships with a variety of collaborators in its region: public and private colleges and universities; federal and state organizations that share UC Merced’s educational and research goals; and cultural and social institutions.
