The University of California Santa Cruz

The Right Livelihood College is a network of ten universities on all continents and one global university network.

The University of California is a public university system in the US state of California. Founded in 1868, the University of California is widely regarded as one of the top public university systems in the world.

Located south of San Francisco, the University of California campus at Santa Cruz (UCSC) is a campus on rolling, forested hills overlooking the Monterey Bay. UCSC’s commitment to environmental stewardship dates back to the founding of the campus in 1965, and it has since been recognized as a leader in advancing global sustainability.

UCSC has roughly 16,000 undergraduate and 1,400 graduate students, offering 63 undergraduate majors and 37 minors, with graduate programs in 33 fields. UCSC is differentiated into ten Colleges in an effort to provide a liberal arts education in the context of a large research institution.

The Campus is hosted by the newly established Institute for Social Transformation, and has kept its links with Kresge College where it was started in November 2013.

In May 2018, the campus hosted the regional conference for Right Livelihood Award Laureates in North America.
